Birmingham have signed Watford striker Jerome Sinclair on loan for the remainder of the season.
Sinclair, born in Birmingham, becomes Blues boss Gianfranco Zola’s sixth signing during the January transfer window.
The 20-year-old has made seven appearances for Watford since moving to Vicarage Road from Liverpool last summer.
Birmingham had been in the market for a striker after finding out that Clayton Donaldson will be out injured for longer than anticipated.
Sinclair told Birmingham’s website: “”I think it’s a really good move for me. Hopefully I can come here and get a lot of game time and help the team progress and develop my game as well.
“I’m only 20 and I’m still developing as a young player, but hopefully this can be a real kick-on for me and I can score goals and help the team.”
He added: “I think I’ll learn a lot from Gianfranco Zola in terms of my game and helping me improve and any little tips I can pick up from him is only going to help me.”
