West Brom striker Peter Odemwingie appears to have chosen a move to Cardiff City, after a summer of speculation, Sky Sports have reported.

The 32-year-old has been linked with a host of clubs for much of the summer ever since becoming frozen out at the Hawthorns after trying to force a move to Queens Park Rangers in January.

Odemwingie has established himself as a reliable finisher in the Premier League during his time with West Brom, and should make a good addition for newly-promoted Cardiff as they look to cement survival in the top flight.

The Welsh club had also been linked with the likes of Solomon Kalou and Kenwyne Jones this summer, as they sought to add more quality upfront, but they will now be pleased to have beaten the likes of Crystal Palace, Hull and rivals Swansea to the signing of the Nigerian international.

Cardiff have started life in the Premier League well, condemning  Manchester City to a surprise 3-2 defeat in their second game, and Odemwingie’s addition for £4million can provide a further boost for Malkay Mackay’s side.

West Brom seem likely to sign Stephane Sessegnon from Sunderland as a replacement for the departing Odemwingie.
