Rumor: Victor Anichebe to West Brom deal back on

There are rumblings that a deal to send Victor Anichebe to West Brom may be back on after all.

After reportedly rejecting a £3.5 million offer from West Bromwich Albion for Victor Anichebe yesterday, rumors are spreading that the 25-year-old striker may still be on the verge of a move.

So where are these rumors coming from? They mostly stem from reports that West Brom's Shane Long is on the verge of signing with Hull City, leaving the Baggies in need of a striker. We know they've been interested in Anichebe and could be willing to up their price out of late minute desperation.

Or this could all be nonsense.

One thing is certain though, if Everton sells Anichebe they better have another striker lined up because neither Arouna Koné or Nikica Jelavić have been impressing anyone so far this season.

Here's my recommendation on this rumor. Take it with a grain a salt and don't start panicking just yet.


BBC Sport's Chief Football Writer Phil McNulty has chimed in on this rumor:

"I've been told there is "a strong possibility" that Everton striker Victor Anichebe will join West Bromwich Albion in a deal worth around £5m. Everton will need to bring in a striker as a matter of urgency if he leaves."
