Tosin has been a member of Pep Guardiola’s first-team squad at City, but the wealth of centre-backs at his disposal, including Vincent Kompany, John Stones, Nicolas Otamendi and Aymeric Laporte, mean 20-year-old Adarabioyo was limited to just four appearances last season.
And the lanky centre-back will now continue his development in the competitive, physical Championship with Darren Moore’s West Brom, who are hoping for a quick return to the Premier League.
FC Utrecht and Wolves also showed interest in the former England youth international, who was heading for his West Brom medical on Thursday.
West Brom are also one of the clubs interested in City striker Lukas Nmecha, but face competition from the likes of Swansea City and Blackburn Rovers.
