Nigerian international Victor Anichebe has come out to tell the media of his intention to make a return to competitive football immediately the ‘right opportunity’ surfaces.

The former Super Eagle is a free agent after he parted ways with Chinese second division side Beijing Enterprises in 2018 and he is now looking forward to bring to and end his ‘unfinished business’ in England.

Anichebe went on trial at League One side Doncaster Rovers last year where he was managed by his former West Bromwich Albion teammate Darren Moore. Unfortunately he couldn’t get a contract with the club and he moved on

The 32 year old has turned out for Premier League household names like Everton, West Bromwich Albion & Sunderland Football Club.

Offers have been tripping in front all corners but Victor has decided to turn them down because he doesn’t want to play outside England and is believing that his fitness level that has improved would help him bag a contract in Britain.

“I feel hungry to play but only if the right opportunity comes,” Anichebe told Sky Sports.

“I am working on a lot of other things right now but if the right opportunity comes then I would definitely play.

“Last year I trained with my friend Darren Moore at Doncaster. It was really good to be in and around (the team atmosphere).

“I have had a few options to go abroad but I feel I want to play in England. I feel like I have unfinished business in England. I would prefer to stay in England for another two years.

“Right now is the fittest I have ever been. We will see if a good opportunity comes and I’ll assess if I actually want to take it and we’ll go from there.”


Anichebe played 204 matches in the English Premier League, scored 27 times and made 18 assists.

Victor Anichebe was part of Nigeria’s U-23 squad that clinched Silver at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. He announced his international retirement in 2013 after earning 11 caps for Nigeria.
