Sinclair: In Lincoln talks
Peter Jackson has confirmed he is looking to bring former Chelsea defender Frank Sinclair to Lincoln City.
"He is a player who I think would do a fantastic job for us, and would be a wonderful capture."
Jackson on Sinclair Quotes of the week
Ex-Huddersfield stopper Sinclair, who was brought to the Galpharm Stadium by Jackson, is out of contract after being released by the West Yorkshire outfit.
Jackson believes the one-time Chelsea and Jamaica international still has something to offer and he is hopeful the vastly-experience defender will join the Sincil Bank outfit.
"I've worked with Frank in the past and he is a player who I think would do a fantastic job for us, and would be a wonderful capture," he told the Lincolnshire Echo.
"He may be 36, but he is fit and keeps himself in incredible shape, in fact he is a little bit of a beast.
"Frank is a fine character, and with the squad that I have got, his experience would be an excellent asset, especially to the young lads in the dressing room.
"He has held talks with other clubs, but given my relationship with him I am hopeful he will come on board and be part of what I'm trying to achieve."
Meanwhile, Nat Brown, who left Lincoln on Thursday after having his contract cancelled by mutual consent, has joined Wrexham.
Brown is the sixth capture for the Welsh outfit this summer following the arrivals of Tom Kearney, Shaun Whalley, Kyle Critchell, Simon Brown and Jefferson Louis.
