Potters to make £4million bid for Nigerian striker.

Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

Stoke City are the latest club to be linked with West Brom outcast Peter Odemwingie, and could make a £4million bid to land him before the transfer window deadline, according to the Daily Mail.

The Nigerian international has been frozen out by the Baggies since he tried to force a move to Queens Park Rangers in January and was subsequently punished for his indiscipline.

The 32-year-old is still highly rated in the Premier League though, and newly-promoted sides Hull City and Crystal Palace have been keen to sign him this summer, as well as Swansea City.

However, it now seems that Stoke are ready to step up their interest in him, as new manager Mark Hughes seeks to add more quality to his side upfront, with Peter Crouch currently on a poor run of goalscoring form.

It has been a quiet summer for the Potters, with PSV left-back Erik Pieters being the only notable addition by the club, while Oussama Assaidi has arrived on loan from Liverpool.

Hughes is cautious about Odemwingie’s recent disciplinary problems, but has decided to push this late move through.
