Two full days after the deadline, Sunderland announced its ninth signing of the summer in free-agent Victor Anichebe.
The 28-year-old was released this summer by West Bromwich Albion after spending three seasons at the club, where he made 55 appearances in all competitions. Anichebe joins on a contract through the end of the season and will provided cover up top following a series of injuries for David Moyes' side. Said Anichebe: "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." Sep 3 - 5:47 AM
