Nigeria striker Victor Anichebe has said he is delighted to reunite with his former manager at Everton, David Moyes, at Sunderland.
Anichebe, 28, has joined Sunderland on a one year deal after his contract at West Bromwich Albion was not renewed.
The Super Eagles attacker played under Moyes between 2006 and 2013.
“I’m really happy to be here at a great club,” africanFootball.com quoted Anichebe as saying on his new English Premier League (EPL) club.
“I have a lot of good friends here and everyone knows that I know the manager really well.
“He brought me through as a young player and was a big factor in me coming here.
“I had a few options in England and Europe but the manager was a huge pull for me. He knows me inside out and I feel like he can get the best out of me.”
