Chelsea youngster Scott Sinclair has moved on a season-long loan to Wigan.

The 20-year-old Chelsea forward has been finding it tough to get a first team place and was on loan previously with Birmingham, QPR, and Crystal Palace. Wigan should provide the youngster with a good chance of tasting premier league football.

Sinclair is Wigan Manager Roberto Martinez's fifth signing for the season.

Chelsea's Franco Di Santo earlier moved to Blackburn and it now remains to be seen if Michael Mancienne will also be loaned, with the Wolves interested in him.
