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.

e was right to leave, but not just because of the money City were coming into. If I remember rightly he had a reasonable amount of chances to shine at City, but he never passed the bloody ball. Loads of aimless dribbles and 40 yard shots and not much else. I would say that if he had learnt to be a bit more of a team player he may have done better at City.
