Scott Sinclair could end his City nightmare soon…
Manchester City winger Scott Sinclair will end his torrid stay at the Etihad, and join West Brom, reports ESPN.
A loan deal has been muted, although the player and his current club would prefer a permanent deal.
The 24-year-old warmed the bench for City for virtually the entirety of last season, after a £7m move from Swansea City the previous summer. His career has stagnated as a result, and Sinclair will be desperate to move somewhere and play first-team football.
The England youth international only made 14 appearances last term, many of which were from the bench.
Steve Clarke, West Brom boss, is keen to bring in attacking talent to score the goals on loan strike Romelu Lukaku did last term. The young Belgian bagged 17 in the Premier League, which helped the Baggies to an eighth placed finish. He will be hoping Sinclair’s quick feet and impressive finishing will guide his side into the top half of the table once more.
Clarke has already brought in impressive free transfers Nicholas Anelka and Diego Lugano, and Sinclair will be the third summer addition at the Hawthorns.
The Scottish boss will hope Sinclair recaptures his impressive form for Swansea.
The wide-forward scored 35 goals in two seasons for the Welsh club, winning them promotion, and helping them to a solid mid-table finish in their first year in the top-flight.
