Ahead of their trip to Watford on Saturday, April 1, Sunderland manager David Moyes is hopeful of welcoming Anichebe for the relegation battle run in.
It’s a crucial month ahead for bottom Sunderland who face Watford, Leicester City, Manchester United, West Ham United, AFC Bournemouth and Middlesbrough in April.
“We hope that Victor could be back and maybe Catts,” Moyes is quoted to say by Sunderland Echo.
“I think Catts could get some training in but the one we’re really looking to see if we can get back is Victor.
“There are no guarantees but I know Victor’s doing a bit more running and hopefully getting closer.”
