Sinclair Keen To Explore All Options

Wolves defender Nyeko Sinclair is remaining open-minded about his future if he is unable to earn a professional contract.

Having performed at this year’s Assessment Trials, Sinclair told LFETV that he has been researching other alternatives to continue his career in the game.

“The LFE Assessment Trial is very important for me but I’m not thinking like it’s the end of the world. It could open doors in other clubs and other opportunities but it’s not the end of the world,” he said.

“I’m not closing my mind to any opportunity. I’m looking into Sweden and going to the United States and University, I’m looking into everything, so LFE have given me a good eye-opener into every option.”

Recent statistics show that 50 per cent of Player Placement participants get a contract at the end of their 13-week spell in Sweden, while hundreds of former apprentices have taken the route of combining football with higher education in the US.

He continued: “I don’t mind moving away from home so going to Sweden to experience a new style of football or going to America to do Uni and play football at the same time, I’m open-minded to everything.

“I’m mainly hoping to be a footballer still but I’m not closing other options.

“If I don’t get a club in the next six months it’s not the end. You can also go to a Non-League club and work your way up, there’s nothing wrong with taking a step back to take two forward.

“It’s very good that we’re able to communicate with LFE to help us for more opportunities.”
