Scott Sinclair: Man City winger joins West Brom on loan

West Brom have signed winger Scott Sinclair from Manchester City on a season-long loan deal.

The 24-year-old joined City from Swansea in August 2012 for an initial £6.2m, but has only started two Premier League matches for the club.

West Brom boss Steve Clarke says Sinclair offers them a fresh dimension.

"He's the type of player we were missing from the squad. He's a pure winger who is quick, direct and scores goals," Clarke told the club's website. 

"Scott understands he needs to play football and we're delighted he feels this is the right club for him at this stage of his career.

"He's frustrated he didn't get the chances to play at Man City last season and hopefully he'll take those frustrations out on Premier League defenders this season."
