West Bromwich Albion has completed the signing of Manchester City winger Scott Sinclair on a season long loan with the possibility of making it a permanent deal.
The 24-year-old former Swansea and Chelsea player was picked to be a star of the future, but failed to find his place in the first team at City relegated to the bench.
He managed to play only 11 games under former City boss Roberto Mancini, and has not figured in Manuel Pellegrini’s plans for the club.
Sinclair is no stranger to baggies boss Steve Clarke who was able to watch him progress through the ranks at Chelsea.
“Scott understands he needs to play football and it will be good to work with him again,” Clarke told the club’s official website.
“Scott is a pure winger, who is quick, direct and scores goals.”
“We’re delighted he feels this is the right club for him at this stage of his career. He is the type of player we were missing from the squad.
“He is a pure winger, who is quick, direct and scores goals – he has proven that over his career. He can play off the right or left and improves our attacking options.
“I know him well and he is a good person, who I know is 100 per cent committed to our cause.
“He is frustrated he did not get the chances to play at Man City last season and hopefully he will take those frustrations out on Premier League defenders this season.”
