New talks over Odemwingie contract

Published Add your comment

West Brom striker Peter Odemwingie's representatives will hold fresh talks with the club over a new contract for the Nigerian international during the next few days.

Odemwingie had a memorable first season for the Baggies, scoring 15 goals and playing a major role in keeping them in the Barclays Premier League. The 29-year-old has a year left of his current contract plus a 12-month option.

But Albion are keen for the player to sign an improved long-term deal to stave off interest from other clubs. Odemwingie said: "A few days ago, I was supposed to have a meeting with the West Brom leadership on the current contract."

He added: "However, it did not take place and the meeting has been rescheduled for the next couple of days (with his representative)."


Odemwingie is currently on holiday in the United States and there is nothing untoward about the contract talks being delayed.

There has been intense speculation about the future of the Nigeria international since the end of the season.

But the Baggies have not received an official approach.

Albion want to secure Odemwingie's services after losing the battle with Swansea for Watford striker Danny Graham who is moving to the Premier League newcomers in a £3.5million deal.

West Brom had previously made a £2.5 million bid to the Hornets.
