Sinclair wings his way to Cardiff
Trevor Sinclair
Sinclair struggled with injury at Manchester City last season
Cardiff City have signed former England winger Trevor Sinclair on a free transfer.

The 34-year-old was released by Manchester City at the end of last season after spending four injury-hit seasons with the Premiership club.

Sinclair, who was also wanted by Stoke City, passed a medical on Tuesday and immediately flew to Portugal to join Cardiff's pre-season tour.

"Trevor will add value and depth to the team," said City chief Peter Ridsdale.

"He will give us more quality as we try to build a team that can operate at the right end of the Championship."

Sinclair, who played at the 2002 World Cup, won 12 caps for England, the last of which came in May 2003.

His 2.5m move to Manchester City later that summer coincided with an unfortunate run of luck with injuries.

His last appearance for City was as a 61st-minute substitute in May's Manchester derby, only his 21st outing of last season.

Meanwhile, Cardiff are expected to give a trial to Greek goalkeeper Kleopas Giannou in their first tour match in Portugal on Wednesday.

The 25-year-old won the Greek national lottery in 2002 and is looking for a move away from Olympiakos after finding first-team appearances hard to come by.
