Victor Anichebe: Reunited with David Moyes

Sunderland have swooped to sign free agent striker Victor Anichebe on a deal until the end of the season.

The 28-year-old Nigerian international has been without a club since leaving West Brom this summer, but knows Black Cats boss David Moyes well from their time together at Everton.

And Moyes, says Anichebe, was a huge factor in his decision to move to the north east.

“I’m really happy to be here at a great club,” he told the club’s official website.

“I have a lot of good friends here and everyone knows that I know the manager really well.

“He brought me through as a young player and was a big factor in me coming here.

“I had a few options in England and Europe but the manager was a huge pull for me. He knows me inside out and I feel like he can get the best out of me.”
