Huddersfield are due to sign Frank Sinclair on loan from Burnley until the end of the season.
Huddersfield Town are poised to sign Burnley's veteran defender Frank Sinclair on loan until the end of the season.
Sinclair has made just two appearances in almost three months and should finalise his switch ahead of Saturday's League One encounter at Bristol City.
He will also have the option of a deal for next season and Terriers boss Peter Jackson is delighted to be bringing in a player of Sinclair's vintage.
"Frank Sinclair has got lots of experience which will be a valued addition to the back line," Jackson told the club's official website.
"We have a young back four and he will hopefully add more steel to the defence. We have been doing okay recently in defence, but we certainly need cover there."
Burnley boss Steve Cotterill offered a tribute to the former Chelsea stopper, who will be out of contract at Turf Moor in the summer.
Cotterill 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."
