The former Chelsea and Man City player described being ‘excited’ and ‘happy’ to be returning to BS7. Sinclair said: “It’s strange but at the same time it’s exciting, I’m really excited for my next chapter, my next challenge and I’m very happy to be back.

“It’s a great touch to come back and be part of it now. It’s to go out and enjoy my football, I’m an experienced pro and the main thing is to be happy playing. I’ve played at the highest level and I just want to be in a position where I can be expressive and add something to the team.”
