Sinclairâs Â£8m summer move to the Premier League Âchampions opened the door for Routledge and he has taken full Âadvantage.
âEveryoneâs frustrated when they are not playing,â said Routledge, who looks to have finally settled after spells at Crystal Palace, ÂTottenham, Portsmouth, ÂFulham, Aston Villa, Cardiff, QPR and Newcastle.
âIt doesnât matter who you are or where you are.
âObviously I knew in the summer that Scottâs move gave me a chance in the team.
âI have done that and it is Âgoing well. It is nice to be Âinvolved a bit more.â
