Swansea City’s chairman Huw Jenkins has held talks with West Brom about bringing out of favour striker Peter Odemwingie to the Liberty Stadium, Goal.com reports.

Odemwingie looks set to leave the Hawthorns before the transfer window closes after he fell with the clubs hierarchy in January over his failed attempt to move to QPR.

The striker hasn’t featured in the West Brom first team so far this season and has been linked with several other top flight clubs, including Cardiff City and Crystal Palace.

However, it looks like Swansea will beat their Premier League rivals to the signature of Odemwingie, with Jenkins confirming that he has spoken to West Brom about signing the Nigerian front man.

“We have had discussions with West Brom [over Odemwingie],” he told The South Wales Evening Post.

However, the Swansea chairman also confirmed that the club are interested in more than player, claiming that it is dangerous at this point in the transfer window to only target one specific signing.

“The one thing you learn about this stage of the window is that you cannot focus on only one target. You have got to have plenty of options, otherwise you might end up wasting your time”.
