Anichebe close to Sunderland return

Super Eagles striker Victor Anichebe  would return just in time to help  Sunderland  in their fight against relegation from the  Premier League.

Anichebe has been out of action since he sustained a knee injury in Sunderland’s 2-0 Premier League loss at  West Brom  on Saturday, January 21.

The Sunderland striker who was ruled out for 10 weeks  after the injury has been in the United States working on his rehabilitation.

Ahead of their trip to  Watford  on Saturday, April 1, Sunderland manager  David Moyes  is hopeful of welcoming Anichebe for the relegation battle run in.

It’s a crucial month ahead for bottom Sunderland who face Watford,  Leicester City,  Manchester United,  West Ham United,  AFC Bournemouth  and  Middlesbrough  in April.

“We hope that Victor could be back and maybe Catts,” Moyes is quoted to say by  Sunderland Echo.

“I think Catts could get some training in but the one we’re really looking to see if we can get back is Victor.

“There are no guarantees but I know Victor’s doing a bit more running and hopefully getting closer."
