Striker Victor Anichebe has announced that he’ll be leaving West Bromwich Albion this summer.
With talks planned between head coach Tony Pulis and Chairman Jeremy Peace about plans and the future next season, and inevitable squad make up changes, the 28 year old former Everton player confirmed on social media that he would be departing this summer, and he thanked the fans for the support he received in his few years with us.
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 ??

Having joined for a reported £5million back at the end of the summer 2013 transfer window, Anichebe made a total of 31 starts for the club, with 32 appearances from the bench and returned a total of nine goals.
This season he only made 14 appearances and his time with us had been troubled by niggly injuries, and with only three starts this year, clearly he wasn’t favoured by Pulis so seeing him move on isn’t a great surprise really.
He is out of contract this summer, and it’s likely he won’t be the only one leaving.
