According to various news sources, Huddersfield Town are poised to sign ex-Chelsea veteran, Frank Sinclair, on loan until the end of the season, with a view to a permanent move.Sinclair ready to be a Terrier

The 35-year-old central defender has been with Burnley since 2004, making almost 100 appearances for the club. However, in recent months the former Clarets skipper has lost his place in the first-team and now wants to move on to gain regular first-team football again.

"Frank Sinclair has got lots of experience which will be a valued addition to the back line. We have a young back four and he will hopefully add more steel to the defence. We have been doing OK recently in defence but we certainly need cover there," said Peter Jackson earlier today.

Burnley boss Steve Cotterill has nothing but respect for his ex-captain. He said: "He's hopefully going to sign for Huddersfield. They enquired about him and it's something I'm looking to do in the short-term and medium-term is turn the team around a little bit.

"Frank's been a fantastic servant and hasn't been a minute's bother since he's been here. But there is an opportunity for him to extend his career beyond this season.

"I had a good chat with Frank the other day and hopefully that will all go through for him and we'd like to wish him all the best. He really has been first class for us."
