Sunderland manager David Moyes has said he will not risk Nigeria striker Victor Anichebe for Sunday’s Premier League at Spurs after he suffered a thigh injury in training.

Moyes said: "It would be good to get Victor ready but I don't want to rush him.

“He has a slight thigh strain so we're being protective."

Shortly after the closure of the transfer window, Anichebe moved to the Stadium of Light as a free agent after he was released by West Bromwich Albion.

The big striker, whose career has been blighted by injuries, has yet to debut for ‘The Black Cats’.
