West Brom confirm signing of former Chelsea star Anelka

West Bromwich Albion have completed the signing of French striker Nicolas Anelka.

The 34-year old has penned a one-year deal with the Baggies on a free transfer after his short-term spell with Juventus finished at the end of last season.

Anelka, who departed Chelsea for Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua in January 2012, will come in to replace Romelu Lukaku who heads back to Stamford Bridge following his successful loan at The Hawthorns last season.
