West Brom keen to sign City’s forgotten man

Scott Sinclair

West Bromwich Albion have made an official enquiry about taking Manchester City’s Scott Sinclair on a season-long loan, according to The Sun.

Sinclair has endured a nightmare time at the Etihad since completing a move from Swansea City only last summer, barely featuring since his £6million transfer.

He is desperate for an opportunity to go out and get first team football – something West Brom can offer him, although the Baggies may face competition from Everton.

New Toffees boss Roberto Martinez is in the market for a new winger, and knows Sinclair well having worked with the 24-year-old at Wigan.

Following an excellent debut season in the Premier League with Swansea, and some promising performances for Team GB at last summer’s Olympics, Sinclair was snapped up by former City manager Roberto Mancini last summer.

The winger barely featured however, finding the task of breaking into the first team ahead of David Silva, James Milner and Samir Nasri too difficult an obstacle to overcome.

City have been busy in the transfer market this summer as well, signing close to £70million in attacking talent with the likes of Alvaro Negredo, Stevan Jovetic and Jesus Navas all arriving at the Etihad – indicating Sinclair will be surplus to requirements next season.

Sinclair ended last season on the sidelines after suffering a blood clot on his arm, but is expected to be fit in time for the start of the season.
