West Brom reject new offer for Odemwingie

West Bromwich Albion have this morning confirmed they have rejected an improved offer from Queens Park Rangers for striker Peter Odemwingie.

The offer, which is believed to be the Hoops final offer is around £3 million, which has been rejected outright by the Baggies, leaving the Nigerian’s future in limbo.

The thirty-one year old is already in hot water at The Hawthorns after a ridiculous public outburst on Twitter over the weekend stating he wants to leave the club with immediate effect.

Odemwingie stated:

“I can understand the reaction of few Albion fans on my desire to leave the club. Real reason? Cos they once doubted my commitment.”

Want to know why I wanted to quit top flight football last summer earlier than I wished to? They know at the club.”

“Last season January window is when I should have handed in transfer request. Was one foot in Rubin Kazan – not for sale. Fulham. Not for sale. Newcastle. Not for sale. Wigan. Not for sale.”

“Loyalty left 70 percent. the rest they stole out of my pocket thinking I was keeping money in there.”

It is unsure whether a further offer will come in for his services before Thursday, but his future looks likely to be in the reserves for the forseeable future unless a move can materialise to the Premier League’s bottom side.
