Want away striker still a Baggie.
West Bromwich Albion chairman Jeremy Pearce has stated that the club have received no offers for troubled striker Peter Odemwingie yet, Sky Sports reports.
The Nigerian international caused controversy during the January transfer window by being turned away from QPR’s ground after he’d claimed that a medical was set to go ahead only for him to then trash the club using social networking site Twitter.
He then spent the rest of the season making sporadic appearances from the bench, much to the fans chagrin and had been tipped to move on this summer with the likes of Crystal Palace, Hull and Swansea all said to be interested, though Pearce has insisted that no offers have been made yet.
“We have a player who is under contract until the end of the season,” Peace told the Birmingham Mail.
“Unless something comes in to change our way of thinking he will be back in pre-season and we will deal with that.
“We took a view at the end of January – not only for the reasons of Peter Odemwingie, or QPR, or whichever agents were involved who acted disgracefully, but for the long term of this football club – that we have to behave a certain way.
“If we don’t do that they will all be knocking on the door. Unless we get an offer we’re happy with we won’t sell him.”
