Anichebe announces West Brom departure

Striker Victor Anichebe is on the lookout for a new club after confirming his departure from Premier League side West Bromwich Albion on Monday.

The Nigeria-born player, 28, departs the midlands club following an injury-hit campaign that saw him make just five starts and nine substitute appearances in all competitions.

Confirming his departure on social platform Twitter, Anichebe wrote: “Thank you to all the @WBAFCofficial fans for the support during my time at the club! I wish you all the best for the future. God bless.”

Anichebe joined the Baggies from Everton in the summer of 2013 after a reported fee worth up to £6 million was agreed.

In total, Anichebe made 55 appearances for West Brom in the Premier League, bagging six goals in the process.
