Peter Odemwingie seals Cardiff move

Published Add your comment

Peter Odemwingie has sealed his move to Cardiff City after his long running fiasco with West Brom manager Steve Clark, which saw him pushed to the fringes of the Albion squad.

It was understood that Cardiff's rivals Swansea, and Stoke were interested in acquiring the signature of the 32-year-old Nigerian, but the forward eventually chose to move to south

Odemwingie nearly left The Hawthorns in January after he personally attempted to force a move through to QPR, only to realise that the move would never materialise. Instead, he
became a somewhat outcast in the midlands, yet still managing to notch up 25 appearances - accompanied by 10 goals.

Odemwingie’s agent Robert Segal has also spoken about the move to Wales, and seems optimistic about the change from West Brom to a team that could potentially be doing their
best to avoid ending the season in the bottom three.

Segal told reporters: “Everybody would realise there was no future for him at West Brom, so this is a new start.

"He is very happy and very ambitious and they (Cardiff) have a great manager in Malky Mackay and when they spoke today, Peter became even more enthusiastic.”
