Former Sunderland and Nigerian striker Victor Anichebe has joined Chinese second division side Beijing Enterprises, the club which Ivorian midfielder Cheick Tiote played for until his death last month.
Anichebe, who was released by Sunderland after their relegation from the English Premier League, joins another Nigerian Leke James at the club which sits at 11th position in a 16-team league.
“We are delighted with the signing of Victor, who played in the Premier League. It’s a positive development for our whole club,” said head coach Gao Hongbo.
“Victor hasn’t trained on the pitch since the Premier League season ended, so it may take a while for him to integrate into our team. We have to be patient with him.”
