London:

West Bromwich Albion announced on Thursday that they have signed winger Scott Sinclair on a season-long loan from Premier League rivals Manchester City.

Sinclair, 24, joined City from Swansea City in a £6.2 million ($9.7 million, 7.2 million euros) transfer last year, but he failed to make an impact at the Etihad Stadium and started only two Premier League games last season.

"Scott understands he needs to play football and we're delighted he feels this is the right club for him at this stage of his career," West Brom coach Steve Clarke, who worked with Sinclair during his formative years at Chelsea, told the club website.

"He's the type of player we were missing from the squad. He's a pure winger who is quick, direct, and scores goals -- he has proved that over his career.

"He's frustrated he didn't get the chances to play at Man City last season and hopefully he'll take those frustrations out on Premier League defenders this season."
