Sessegnon, Anichebe to leave West Brom


London (AFP) – Benin winger Stephane Sessegnon and Nigeria striker Victor Anichebe will leave West Bromwich Albion after the Premier League club decided not to offer the duo new contracts.

Sessegnon made 92 appearances and scored eight goals for Albion after signing from Sunderland in 2013, but he was unable to convince boss Tony Pulis he was worthy of a contract extension.

The 31-year-old made 30 appearances and scored one goal as Albion comfortably avoided relegation this season.

Anichebe had announced on Twitter earlier this week that he would be leaving and Pulis has now confirmed the former Everton forward’s departure. 

The 28-year-old played 63 times for Albion and found the net nine times after joining the club during the same transfer window as Sessegnon.

“The two lads worked really hard for me and were as good as gold. Everybody at the club wishes them all the best in their future careers,” Pulis told Albion’s website.

Meanwhile, Albion remain in talks with Scotland midfielder James Morrison about extending his stay at the Hawthorns.

Morrison, whose contract expires shortly, has been with West Brom for nine years and made over 275 appearances for the club.
