WEST BROMWICH, England (AP) -- Scott Sinclair has ended his miserable spell at Manchester City by joining fellow Premier League side West Bromwich Albion on a season-long loan deal.

West Brom says Thursday the club has the option to sign the former Chelsea and Swansea winger on a permanent basis at the end of the season.

The 24-year-old Sinclair, who played for Britain in the Olympic football tournament at the London Games, signed for City for 6.2 million pounds ($9.6 million) last summer but only started two league games last season.

West Brom manager Steve Clarke says Sinclair will bring a "wow factor'' to the team, adding "he has had a frustrating time at Manchester City but you cannot doubt his quality in terms of what he has done in the past.''
