Anelka: Signs for West Brom on a free transfer

West Brom have completed the signing of free agent Nicolas Anelka.

The French striker returns to the Premier League on an initial 12-month contract following an unhappy year in Chinese football and a short spell in Italy.

West Brom will have the option to award Anelka a further year's deal next summer.

Anelka left Chelsea for Shanghai Shenhua in January 2012 but joined Juventus during this year's transfer window.

A move to The Hawthorns reunites him with Steve Clarke, the Albion manager who was still a coach at Chelsea when the striker arrived at the start of 2008.

Anelka, 34, has played for 10 clubs in his career and Albion are his sixth in England.

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
