Troubled striker eyes a move to Wales.
West Bromwich Albion striker Peter Odemwingie has been given permission to speak to Premier League new boys Cardiff City over a move to the Welsh capital, Sky Sports reports.
However, the Bluebirds are thought to be in competition with Stoke City and rivals Swansea City for the 31-year-old’s signature as he remains firmly out of favour at the Hawthornes following his indiscretions during the final day of the January transfer window.
West Brom are believed to be holding out for a fee of over £2million for the Russian born Nigerian international.
Odemwingie has been frozen out by manager Steve Clarke as his behaviour suggested that he did not want to be at the club since trying to force through a move to Queens Park Rangers. Clarke had briefly reintroduced him to the squad towards the end of last season, but increased outrage from the fans in the stands quickly spelled the end of his time with the club.
Albion added Nicolas Anelka to their ranks earlier this summer and are also believed to be looking at Everton striker Victor Anichebe and Sunderland’s Stephane Sessegnon as further options before the 11pm deadline.
Odemwingie scored 10 goals in 25 appearances last season.
