Charlton set to win battle for Chelsea's Sinclair

Charlton Athletic boss Alan Pardew hopes to sign Chelsea striker Scott Sinclair on-loan today.

Sinclair has been wanted by Charlton for weeks, even though Pardew already has three wingers on the left side, and his advisers are keen for him to stay in London, says the Mirror.

Table-topping Stoke have also been in for Sinclair but could not guarantee him regular football, while Burnley chief Owen Coyle inquired about the teenager, who he believes would be just what the Clarets need to reach the Premier League.

Chelsea will officially announce Sinclair's destination today after his fate was discussed over the weekend, but insiders say Charlton have won the vote.
