SPEEDSTER Emile Sinclair wants a quick return to the Championship - and would jump at the chance to do it with Doncaster Rovers.

The 25-year-old striker joined Rovers for the rest of the season on the same day Wolves launched their successful raid for Dean Saunders.

The on-loan Peterborough frontman lost his place in the side to Chris Brown at Stevenage on Saturday after being thrown in at the deep end against Colchester.

But Leeds-born Sinclair, who cut his recent loan spell at Barnsley short to join Doncaster, is determined to make the most of his time at the Keepmoat Stadium - and has revealed he would be open to a permanent move to Rovers.

Sinclair said: “Doncaster are a Championship side and they are proving that with how they are playing and where they are in the table.

“I’m going to give this loan spell my all and hopefully I can be a Championship player next season, maybe with Doncaster. We’ll see what happens.

“Hopefully I can add pace, power and goals.

“Colchester wasn’t one of my best games but the more I train with the lads, get to know them and get back to full fitness, I think I can have a good time here.

“I see this is an opportunity to further my career. I don’t see it as a step down.”

Sinclair was transfer listed at Peterborough in November following a breach of club discipline.

He scored 14 goals for the Posh last season but has struggled to recapture that form this term and endured a frustrating loan spell at Oakwell prior to becoming Saunders’ final Doncaster signing.

“It didn’t quite work out at Barnsley,” said Sinclair.

“The strikers there were playing well and I wasn’t fully fit.

“I’ve not played much football this season and I just want to get some regular football under my belt.

“I knew there was interest in the summer [from Doncaster] and I’ve always had a bit of interest in Doncaster as well.

“My loan was finishing at Barnsley so this was a chance for me to get out and come here.

“Doncaster are flying and hopefully I can help the club.

“It’s good to come into a team that are doing well and hopefully I can add to that and help get us promoted.

“Everyone gets on well here and there’s a good atmosphere,” he added.

“I’m from Leeds so Doncaster’s just round the corner, and it’s a bit of stability for me knowing that I’m here till the end of the season.

“I’ll get my head down and work hard.

“I can play wide as well as up front so I’d be happy to play on the wing if it means getting a start.

“It’s up to me to try and get a shirt and hold onto it.”

Sinclair has found the net three times this season.
