Victor Anichebe has completed his move to Chinese club, Beijing Enterprises.
Anichebe was released by Sunderland following their relegation from the Premier League last season and will now continue his career in China’s second tier.
He joins fellow Nigerian, Leke James, at his new club who are 11th in the 16-team China League One.
“We are delighted with the signing of Victor, who played in the Premier League. It’s a positive development for our whole club,” head coach Gao Hongbo said.
“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.”
Anichebe scored three goals in 18 Premier League appearances for Sunderland last term.
