Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

West Brom manager Steve Clarke has confirmed that his side are in for Manchester City winger Scott Sinclair, according to the Independent.

The 24-year-old has endured a frustrating time at the Etihad Stadium since joining from Swansea last summer, making just 11 appearances in the Premier League for Roberto Mancini’s side, many of them as a substitute.

It would appear that Sinclair does not feature in the plans of new manager Manuel Pellegrini either, and West Brom are hopeful this could mean they can add the winger to their fine work in the transfer market so far this summer.

The Baggies have succeeded in bringing in some astute purchases in Nicolas Anelka, Matej Vydra, Diego Lugano and Goran Popov, and look set to continue their good work after a record-high finish and points tally in 2012/13.

Refusing to give too much away, Clarke explained that the clubs are currently in talks over the transfer of Sinclair, saying: “I know there was initial contact between the clubs and I know there has been continued contact between the clubs.

“Beyond that, I don’t know if we are close to a deal or if we are far away from a deal.

“There are still talks ongoing at this moment in time.”

Sinclair has also been linked with Liverpool this summer, as well as with a return to the Liberty Stadium with Swansea.
