DONE DEAL: Sunderland sign free agent Victor Anichebe

Sunderland have signed released West Brom striker Victor Anichebe.

Black Cats boss David Moyes has taken action after being left with just one senior striker, Jermain Defoe, on the books of the Wearside club.

With Fabio Borini facing up to three months on the sidelines with a groin injury and Steven Fletcher and Danny Graham having departed Sunderland in the summer, Moyes has moved for a player he knows well.

Anichebe was a youth-team player at Everton under Moyes and went on to make more than 130 appearances for the Goodison Park club, before joining West Brom.

He has signed to the end of the season.
