Victor Anichebe has today joined English Premiership side Sunderland on a free transfer on a 1-year contract.

The 28-year-old Nigerian became Sunderland's ninth summer signing after penning a year contract.

The player told Sunderland’s official website, “I’m really happy to be here at a great club,”

“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.”

It will be recalled that forward has made over 120 appearances for David Moyes while he was still at Everton.

The player became a free agent after leaving West Brom at the end of last season.

Anichebe has 11 caps for his home country, Nigeria, scoring a goal.
