The terms of the loan allow Albion to sign Sinclair on a permanent deal after the season.
The former Chelsea, Swansea and Wigan midfielder passed a medical earlier today and has been handed the No.10 shirt.
Sinclair is a player Baggies boss Steve Clarke welcomed Sinclair to the club. “Scott understands he needs to play football and it will be good to work with him again,” said Clarke. “We’re delighted he feels this is the right club for him at this stage of his career.”
Clarke went on to label Sinclair as a player that Albion “were missing from the squad,” describing the 24 year old as “a pure winger, who is quick, direct and scores goals.”
Clarke is quite familiar with Sinclair after the two worked together while the winger was coming through the ranks at Stamford Bridge. “I know him well and he is a good person, who I know is 100 per cent committed to our cause,” said Clarke.
“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.”
Sinclair’s decision to leave Swansea for City was one that he quickly regretted after finding himself well over his head in competition. The likes of David Silva, Samir Nasri, James Milner and, at times, Aleksander Kolarov were enough to limit Sinclair to a mere 12 league appearances (10 of which were as a substitute).
