Victor Anichebe: New Sunderland signing

Striker Victor Anichebe has confirmed he will be leaving West Brom when his contract expires next month after a difficult season with the Baggies.

Anichebe, who moved to The Hawthorns from Everton in the summer of 2013, has struggled to make an impression in the first team this season, despite a troubled campaign for fellow striker Saido Berahino.

The 28-year-old Nigerian did not start a Premier League match for West Brom until the 1-0 home win over Newcastle on December 28 and boss Tony Pulis named him in his starting line up on just two further occasions.

Anichebe wrote on Twitter:

Anichebe’s contract is set to run out and he will leave the club after scoring nine goals in 63 appearances for Albion.
