Super Eagles striker, Victor Anichebe, has declared his intention to quit West Bromwich Albion when the transfer window opens in January, 2016 after making his first Premier League start of the season in Monday’s 1-0 win over Newcastle.
“When you get your chance, hopefully I’ve taken a good step. Whether I stay here or whether I go somewhere else, I thought I did myself justice.
“I thought the team did well as well, so hopefully I can use that to kick on,”Anichebe told the Mirror.
“Honestly it’s the best I’ve felt for a couple of years. It is really the best I’ve felt. I got a good pre-season behind me with the gaffer and then I pushed on fitness wise.
“Unfortunately I haven’t really played that much even though it’s been such a difficult time, we’ve worked together we’ve stayed tight the group of us.
“He put me in but credit to myself, Poco, Gamboa, Callum McManaman, Serge, Sess before. There’s a few of us, we’re all in the same situation.
“We weren’t really getting a look in, but we’ve always been doing training on our own,”
The striker has yet to score in two league appearances for West Brom this season.
