Cardiff City's summer signing, Peter Odemwingie, has criticised former club West Bromwich Albion for their role in his embarrassing transfer episode. 

The Russia-born Nigerian famously drove to the Queens Park Rangers training ground on the final day of the January transfer window earlier this year, in order to force a move to the London club. 

Baggies boss Steve Clarke described the move as 'total lunacy', but according to the Sky Sports WebsiteOdemwingie believes his former club were as much to blame as he was. 

"I will take my responsibility but one side was claiming to be perfect. I think mistakes were made on their side too," he said. 

Odemwingie signed a two-year deal at the Cardiff City Stadium, costing the club £2.25 million. The striker is clearly still upset at the way his West Brom career ended, but he admits he still loves the Baggies fans. 

"I'm pleased to be here and disappointed things didn't work at West Brom but I still love the fans just not the people involved (in the transfer saga)," he added. 

The 32-year-old then taunted his former team mates by suggesting his new squad are more talented than Steve Clarke's side. 

"I told my wife yesterday that what I see in this squad is stronger than West Brom," he concluded. 

Cardiff travel to Hull City on Saturday with both sides aiming for their second win of the campaign so far.
