Nigerian striker keen to leave the Hawthorns.
West Bromwich Albion striker Peter Odemwingie has revealed that he remains keen to leave the club according to Goal.com.
In what is likely to be one of the least-surprising stories of the summer, the Nigerian striker revealed that he remains desperate for a transfer elsewhere.
Odemwingie hit the headlines after a farcical series of events on transfer deadline day during the previous January transfer window.
Odemwingie was seen live outside QPR’s Loftus Road stadium as he looked to push through a transfer to the West London club.
But West Brom claimed they had received no contact from QPR regarding a bid for the player and refused to give permission for Odemwingie to discuss a deal.
Discussions carried on right until the last minute but a deal could not be secured, leaving a bitter taste in the mouths of all concerned.
Odemwingie has since been the butt of a number of jokes at his expense and that has likely further hastened his departure.
He has reiterated his desire to try his hand elsewhere, revealing he would now be happy to drop down a division in order to seal a move away from the Black Country club.
It remains to be seen whether QPR will return for his signature.
