West Brom Reject New £2m QPR bid for Peter Odemwingie: The Daily EPL

Nigerian striker Peter Odemwingie is stuck in the middle at West Bromwich Albion where he wants to leave the club, but West Brom doesn’t want any key players to leave in the window. As a result, both Odemwingie and QPR are growing frustrated. Rangers have had a second bid for the footballer turned down by West Brom, while Odemwingie has been told that he has to wait until the summer before he can leave the club.

I can see both sides to the story. Albion doesn’t want the clinical striker to leave since he’ll be someone they may need to rely on for the remaining months of the season to ensure a place as high in the table as possible. Odemwingie, meanwhile, is frustrated by the lack of playing time and seems to want a fresh start at one more club in the Premier League. He’s 31, so he’s not getting any younger. Lastly, the gifted striker is contracted to West Brom, so WBA have every right to tell the player that he’s staying.

What do you think? Should West Brom let Odemwingie leave since the Baggies already have Lukaku and Long up front?

    So pleased Holtby has joined… I wonder if levy will surprise all and get in Alvero Negredo?

    Below is a link to a nice little comp of what Holtby can do for us… Definately mute it, give it 20 seconds to get going.

    Even at 31, £2m is too little for Odemwingie. QPR need to make a real offer if they are serious.

      Maybe they offered so little because he doesn’t have much time left on his contract?

      My question is why would he go to a relegation-bound team? Also, will he play any more there than at WBA? Could be that he is after more money and he feels that at his age it’s more about that than anything else. Lots of players think more about money when they are at the end of their careers.
