Sinclair On Situation

Trevor Sinclair insists it is business as usual amidst all of the speculation about his future.
Newcastle have been added to Sunderland's name as a potential purchaser, but the player himself insists he has heard nothing.
It means he could be making his England debut in the upcoming friendly against Sweden - assuming, of course, he is selected - as a West Ham player.
"I've not had any phone calls from the club saying that I've got permission to speak to any other club," he stresses.
"Unless that stance changes in the next week or so, and I am involved, I will be representing England as a West Ham player."
And he insists that he will not be joining a club, if he does move, that he feels are no bigger than West Ham.
"I don't want to be taking side steps for a new challenge," he explains.
"It is pointless going to a club of equal stature."
He is aware of the price tag of £10m and adds:
"I'm rated at that by West Ham but by no one else at the moment!
"If one of the big boys is not prepared to come in for me at that figure then it looks like I will be staying at West Ham; the amount has not really got much to do with me.
"Whatever the figure is either someone is going to put it up or I am going to be staying here."
He is unaware of interest from Newcastle, and whether they figure as a bigger club, remains to be seen.
Talking of a supposed offer from Bobby Robson, Trevor adds:
"I don't know how true that is, and I wouldn't like to speculate what offers have been made to West Ham.
"All I can do is what I have been doing since I put the transfer request in: keep on giving my best, which I always stated I would do.
"West Ham as a whole, my team mates, the supporters, and West Ham as a business all expect that and it is the least I can do for a solution to the situation."
Trevor knows that Glenn wants to persuade him to change his mind, and adds:
"I'd be lying if I said he didn't; I think he's been happy with the way I have been performing and he'd want me to stay at the club if possible."
He says he is not going in to see him about a move, explaining:
"Glenn has had enough to deal with, maybe not so much now, but in the past few weeks, and I don't think having me banging on his door every five minutes is going to do anyone any good.
"It's not going to do me any good and it is not going to help him either; it's probably going to unsettle me more than anything if I went in there every day or every week saying 'what's happening?'
"I have given him a written transfer request and all I can do now is keep on playing to the best of my ability and hope that someone will come and get me.
"As a club West Ham have been good to me and I would be out of order if I was going to start spitting the dummy, making all kinds of problems, missing games, and feigning injury.
"It's not what I'm about and I think I have been as honest as I can be throughout the last month or so on and off the field; I will just get on with my job."
Talking of reaction to his transfer request, he says:
"I've had so many people wishing me the best if I do go and asking me to reconsider; the support has been brilliant and I really appreciate that.
"In a couple of games I've had a few people boo at me which is understandable, and I'd be disappointed if I didn't get it because the West Ham fans are fanatical and want their team to do well.
"They don't want to see players that they have taken in and made to feel welcome leave.
"The fact I've had so much positive response from fans, though, has been great and encouraging.
"I've always said I love West Ham and that's not changed; it's just I feel I need a new challenge."
And England around the corner?
"I'd hope to be involved and we'll just have to wait and see," he says.
"Sven has seen a bit more of me in training now and hopefully that is enough to bring me back for this friendly against Sweden.
"If I'm involved it would be absolutely unbelievable to get an opportunity to show the England manager what I can do."
It is certainly a firm belief of Glenn Roeder that he will play against Sweden and Trevor says:
"I don't know what the word is but if that is the word I'll go with the word!
"It would be a dream for me to represent the country at full international level."
Despite what appeared to be misgivings about West Ham selling two other England players, Rio Ferdinand and Frank Lampard, he does admit the squad is improving and adds:
"It goes without saying that Glenn has made some good signings and once he strengthens the squad a bit more the prospects there will be good.
"I have always said West Ham as a team has got plenty of ability; it's just about getting everyone fit at the right time, getting different players on the park for different games.
"I feel we could strengthen the squad because to get through the whole season with the same players is going to be tough.
"New faces always lift the place."
