Chinese second-tier club Beijing Enterprises have signed Nigerian striker Victor Anichebe.
The player was recently released by Sunderland following their relegation from the premier league.
Anichebe joins compatriot Leke James at the club, which is still reeling from the tragic death of Ivorian Cheick Tiote earlier this month.
The former Everton and West Brom striker joined Sunderland last year but his progress at the club was hampered by injuries as he only managed three goals in 18 games for the Black Cats.
“We are delighted with the signing of Victor, who played in the Premier League. It’s a positive development for our whole club,” said head coach Gao Hongbo.
“Victor hasn’t trained on the pitch since the Premier League season ended, so it may take a while for him to integrate into our team. We have to be patient with him.”Please subscribe to our newsletter
