Odemwingie to stay at Albion
Saturday 26 January 2013
West Bromwich Albion have rejected a transfer request from striker Peter Odemwingie, the club's sporting and technical director, Richard Garlick, last night confirmed.
Odemwingie, the club's top scorer over the past two seasons, is a target for Queen's Park Rangers who have already had a bid of £2m turned down during the current transfer window. Garlick stressed that Albion have "no need" to sell.
Garlick said: "Peter is hugely popular and it is disappointing that he has decided to hand in a transfer request. It was immediately turned down and has done nothing to change our stance during January."
