Swansea City winger Scott Sinclair has revealed that he will discuss extending his contract with new manager Michael Laudrup after the Olympics.
The 23-year-old is currently in the final year of his three-year contract with the Premier League club.
Sinclair is with Team GB for London 2012 at the moment, but he has disclosed that once the Olympics are over, he will talk to Laudrup, who replaced Brendan Rodgers at Swansea this summer.
"I'm going back and I'm sure I'm going to learn a hell of a lot from the new manager," he said. "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]."
Speaking on Team GB's progress to the quarter-finals, Sinclair expressed his optimism of winning a medal.
"It's an amazing experience," he enthused. "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."
Team GB will take on South Korea at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday for a place in the semi-finals.
