QPR owner Tony Fernandes has told the Daily Star that the club will try again to sign Peter Odemwingie from West Brom, after failing to secure a move for the striker in January.

The Nigerian controversially made his way to Loftus Road to complete the deal with Rangers, before West Brom had even given him permission to do so. In the end he was forced to stay with the Baggies as the two clubs couldn’t agree a fee.

He has since been disciplined by the club for his behaviour, and remains unpopular with the fans at the Hawthorns, prompting rumours that his long-term future lies elsewhere.

QPR have been relegated from the Premier League this season, but it is believed that boss Harry Redknapp will stay with the club and look to sign Odemwingie again, even if they can only offer him Championship football.

“Harry has gone on record and said he would like to get Peter Odemwingie again,” Fernandes said. “We have got to see if the numbers make sense.

“Never say never and it depends on what West Brom want to do. Harry likes him.”

QPR face a mass exodus of players this summer, as they signed a number of big names to help them climb the table. Despite their ambitions, the club has performed poorly and never looked like avoiding the drop. However, the signing of Odemwingie would boost their chances of a return to the top flight next season.
