Sunderland boss David Moyes has hinted that new striker Victor Anichebe will not be making his debut against Everton.
Moyes returns to his old stamping ground on Monday when he takes his Black Cats to face his former club, but new signing Anichebe will not be involved on the night.
The 28-year-old, who was signed on a free transfer after being released by West Brom, started his career at Goodison Park under Moyes although it looks like he will have to wait to make his second debut for the manager.
“He’s going to need a while, because he is not ready to play yet and we are going to give him plenty of time,” Moyes told the Chronicle about Anichebe.
“If Victor is right, he can be a real handful.”
