West Brom talks continuing for City flop
The 24-year-old has had a torrid time at Eastlands with only three starts for the Manchester club last season following his transfer from Swansea City, and looks set to leave the club this summer.
The Baggies are hopeful of securing a loan deal for the midfielder as they look to build on their positive 2012/2013 season.
TalkSport reports that in the press conference before the club’s opener against Southampton, Clarke said: “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.”
Clarke has already strengthened his squad this summer with the arrivals of Nicolas Anelka, Diego Lugano, Matej Vydra and Goran Popov.
The Scot is adamant on making more signings on top of Sinclair before the close of the current transfer window.
He added: ”At the moment, if I could get two more in, I’d be happy, and if I could get three more, then I think we’d be set. I’m staying confident.”
