Anichiebe will be leaving West Brom after the club declined to re-sign him.

Anichebe's release should come as little surprise as he failed to make regular appearances on the pitch this year as he was in the starting XI just three times and was substituted in only an additional seven matches. In all, it has been a disappointing career at The Hawthorns for the forward following a nine-year run of decent form with Everton. In three seasons with West Brom, the 28-year-old recorded a paltry nine goals. It is unclear where Anichebe will land but he may have seen his last Premier League action.

DraftKings Fantasy Soccer: Saturday EPL Targets

Kevin De Bruyne has been a fantasy star this season, but one of his midfield teammates could provide more bang for the buck this weekend against West Ham.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Anichebe is considered questionable for Saturday's match versus Stoke because of a hamstring injury, the Birmingham Mail reports.

The Nigerian played well in his first start of the season last week against Newcastle, but he limped off the pitch in the second half after suffering the injury. He will be assessed ahead of Saturday's match, with Salomon Rondon or Saido Berahino likely to start if he is unable to achieve fitness in time.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Manager Tony Pulis said Thursday that Anichebe (groin) is still not fully fit and could miss this weekend's match versus Stoke.

Anichebe is not a lock to miss this weekend's match, but his two-week absence along with the injury confirmation by his manager do not bode well for his status. Anichebe only has one goal in 14 appearances this season so he shouldn't be near the top of your fantasy radar, fit or not.

Anichebe (groin) will not play Tuesday against Aston Villa, the Birmingham Mail reports.

West Brom are facing a full-on injury crisis up front, as Brown Ideye (knee) and Saido Berahino (foot) both suffered injuries Saturday against Manchester United and will have late fitness tests before Tuesday's match.

Anichebe grabbed an assist in Saturday's 1-0 win against Hull City.

Anichebe touched an indirect free kick to Saido Berahino who placed it home in the 78th minute. The Nigerian replaced his compatriot Brown Ideye in the 73rd minute and didn't take long to impress new boss Tony Pulis.

Anichebe scored a 51st minute header in Saturday's 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace.

Anichebe replaced Stephane Sessegnon at half time and headed home Chris Brunt's corner early in the second half. The Nigerian striker then won the penalty that Saido Berahino equalised from at the death. Anichebe changed the game after coming on and this was his first goal of the campaign. Expect him to push for a start next time out against Leicester City.

Anichebe (groin) has returned to training and could make Monday's game against Manchester United, manager Alan Irvine told the official club website.

Anichebe (groin) trained in the USA over the international break and manager Alan Irvine still sounds cautious over a return on Monday. "Victor Anichebe has been in the States and trained well. Hopefully he will be ok but we will see how he is," Irvine said. Anichebe has been hampered by injury problems so far this season and increased competition at centre forward gives him a low fantasy price tag.

Anichebe (groin) won't play against Liverpool on Saturday, manager Alan Irvine told the Birmingham Mail.

Anichebe missed last week's game against Burnley with the injury and is being given the international break to recuperate with a return for the Manchester United game on Oct. 20 looking likely.
