West Brom are again being linked with a swoop to sign out-of-favour Manchester City winger Scott Sinclair on a season-long loan deal.
The former Swansea man, who cost City £6million last summer, appeared to be surplus to requirements at the Etihad Stadium under Roberto Mancini and although Manuel Pellegrini has replaced the Italian at the helm, Sinclair's future still remains in doubt following the arrival of Jesus Navas.
Spanish La Liga outfit Espanyol and Premier League rivals Newcastle and Everton have been linked with Sinclair who made just 11 Premier League appearances last term.
However Baggies boss Steve Clarke had initially been linked last month and, as he continues to try and add to his squad following the arrival of just striker Nicolas Anelka to date, it appears he will resurrect his attempts to take him to the Hawthorns.
The main obstacle to a deal is that City would like to sell the 24-year-old for around £5million to recoup some funds while Clarke is thought to be only offering Sinclair a season-long loan in the Midlands.
