West Bromwich Albion are paying a hefty fee for Manchester City winger Scott Sinclair.

The Daily Mail says West Brom have paid Manchester City just over £2million to take winger Sinclair on loan for the season.

The deal includes an option to buy and it is understood that Albion have agreed to fund Sinclair's wages during what will be the seventh loan spell of his career after the England Under-21 international passed a medical on Thursday morning. He will wear the No 10 shirt.
