The former-Swansea winger arrives at the Hawthorns on loan with a view to a permanent move.
Scott Sinclair has finally secured a transfer out of Manchester City with West Brom taking the winger on loan until the end of the 2013-14 season, with an option to buy.
West Brom manager has past experience with Sinclair, having helped his progression through the Chelsea academy in his time as the Blues’ assistant manager.
“Scott understands he needs to play football and it will be good to work with him again,” Clarke told the West Brom official website, “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.”
Now 24 years of age, Sinclair suffered through a torrid season at Eastlands, making just 11 Premier League appearances last year.
Sinclair will join West Brom as effectively the only out-and-out winger in the team, and should inject some much-needed pace into the Baggies’ attacks.
