West Brom manager Roy Hodgson has dismissed reports claiming striker Peter Odemwingie requires an ankle operation.

Odemwingie featured for Nigeria last weekend as they failed to qualify for the finals of the African Nations Cup after a 2-2 draw with Guinea. Reports in Africa had suggested the 30-year-old was carrying an injury and needed surgery.

Hodgson told the club website, "There is no question of an operation for Peter. The doctor, Mark Gillett, has a very good relationship with him and whenever Peter has a poor game he looks to his ankle."

He added: "That's what he has been doing ever since I've been at the club, and whenever things aren't going his way and he's not in top form he looks at his ankle.

"But there is no question of him needing an operation."
