Albion forward outcast again.
Premier League new boys Hull City are lining up a summer swoop for outcast West Bromwich Albion striker Peter Odemwingie, according to The Mirror.
The 31-year-old found himself outcast again this weekend, being made to miss out from making the squad for Sir Alex Ferguson’s final farewell in a thrilling 5-5 draw after blasting him teammates following the previous week’s 4-0 defeat to Norwich last weekend.
It was a move considered too far for Baggies boss Steve Clarke who had slowly began to reintroduce the the Soviet-born Nigerian international after he disgraced himself during the January transfer window.
Qdemwingie tried to force through a move to rivals QPR and then took to Twitter to slam the club an its fans. He has since become a target for jeers and jokes ever since, with TV host, and famed Albion fan, Adrian Chiles cracking a joke at his expense at the annual end of season club award dinner.
He is largely expected to head for the exit this summer but so far Hull are the only side to enquire about his services.
Last week Clarke had been hoping to get around £4.5 million for his services but Hull have so far fell well short of that valuation.
Clarke is hoping now to at least drive them over £3 million and said: “It is not a charity.”
