Victor Anichebe: Everton sell striker to West Brom

A busy end to the transfer window saw the Nigeria forward leave Goodison Park, along with Marouane Fellaini, who sealed a £27.5m deal to join Manchester United just before the 11pm deadline.

Anichebe's move became possible when Everton brought in Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku on loan from Chelsea for the season.

The Anichebe deal was a fourth of the day for the Baggies, who also signed keeper Lee Camp, midfielder Morgan Amalfitano and broke their transfer record to bring in Sunderland forward Stephane Sessegnon.

They are reported to have spent £5m to sign the 25-year-old with clauses taking the possible cost up by a further £1m.

Anichebe has spent all of his career so far with Everton, making a total of 168 appearances across all competitions and scoring 26 goals, although many of his outings came off the bench.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
