Newly-promoted Crystal Palace will bid £1.7million for West Brom striker Peter Odemwingie, according to The Telegraph. 

The striker has never really recovered from his antics on the January transfer deadline day. 

Odemwingie arrived at Queens Park Rangers where he expected to speak to the club regarding personal terms, but was left waiting in the car park because the two clubs couldn't agree a fee over the 31-year-old.

Odemwingie has less than 12 months left to run on his contract, but the player who will be desperate to be back playing first-team football, is likely to relish the opportunity to move away from West Brom earlier than the end of his contract.

Ian Holloway will be looking to re-energise the Nigerian international into scoring and playing again. 

Odemwingie has managed 30 goals in 87 appearances for West Brom, and has played 55 times for his country Nigeria, scoring nine goals in the process. Odemwingie was also eligible to play for Kazakhstan, Russia and Uzbekistan before opting for Nigeria. 

West Brom are set to fly out to Austria today for their pre-season training camp, however it's expected that Odemwingie will be asked to stay at home to try and finalise a deal at Selhurst Park with Crystal Palace. 

It's believed that Odemwingie has in fact been training away from the West Brom first team anyway this summer, with all parties hoping that a transfer can be confirmed sooner rather than later. 

However with West Brom hoping to recoup more of the £4million they paid for the striker, Palace may have to increase their bid to over £2million.
