Scott Sinclair has revealed he is eager to sign a new long-term deal at Swansea City.

The 23-year-old, who is in the final year of his current contract, scored eight goals for the Swans in their first season in the Premier League, with the Team GB striker playing a key role as the newly-promoted side finished in 11th place.

Sinclair, who moved to the Liberty Stadium from Chelsea in 2010, is excited by the prospect of working with Swansea’s new manager Michael Laudrup and is hoping to extend his stay at the club.

“I’m going back and I’m sure I’m going to learn a hell of a lot from the new manager,” said Sinclair.

“He was obviously a legend back in his time. The idea was me going away and concentrate on the Olympics, that’s basically what I’m going to do now.

“Then when I get back I’ll talk to the manager and we’ll sit down and discuss it [his contract].”

Sinclair was included in Stuart Pearce’s 18-man Team GB squad for the Olympics and the Swansea forward, who scored in the hosts’ 3-1 win against the United Arab Emirates at Wembley, is aiming to pick up a medal at the Games.

“It’s an amazing experience,” added Sinclair. “It’s a great honour to be part of Team GB. As the days go by and in each training session and each game we’ve looked stronger and stronger.

“Hopefully we can keep going and try and get a medal.”
