West Brom put Ideye and Anichebe up for sale

13 August 2015, 11:07

London - Manager of West Bromwich Albion Tony Pulis has confirmed the club will listen to offers for the Nigeria striking duo of Brown Ideye and Victor Anichebe, following the 12 million pounds record signing of Salomon Rondon.

The Baggies now have five strikers in their ranks and Pulis was unequivocal in stressing the Nigerians are the most likely to move on, despite Saido Berahino being the most sought after with reports of a 25 million pounds bid from Tottenham Hotspurs for the forward.

“People will look at Victor (Anichebe) and Brown (Ideye) and think they have to move on, but they have wanted to play more regular football anyway,” said Pulis.

“Bringing Salomon in, does it hasten their move from the club? We’ll have to wait and see.”

Ideye was a subject of a bid from a Middle East team, but after the move fell through he ended up being a fan favorite as his goals were pivotal in helping them beat the drop.

Both players were on the bench for West Brom in their opening premier league game against Manchester City, with Anichebe coming on as a substitute in the second half.
