West Brom head coach Roy Hodgson insists striker Peter Odemwingie is not for sale.

Odemwingie was Albion's top scorer last season, his 15 goals helping to preserve the club's Barclays Premier League status.

The Nigeria international has struggled to recapture the same form during the current campaign but remains pivotal to Hodgson's plans, who said: "I'm not aware of any interest in Peter. We don't need to sell him, we don't want to sell him."
