West Bromwich Albion striker Peter Odemwingie was in talks with Crystal Palace yesterday.

The Daily Mail says Odemwingie, who gained notoriety when he drove to Loftus Road on transfer deadline day in January to try to force a move to QPR, has been told he can leave the Hawthorns.

Odemwingie, 31, will have to take a wage cut to join the Eagles, but they are desperate to sign him.

Eagles chief Ian Holloway failed in a previous attempt to land him on loan in January when the club wanted a lift in the promotion run in.
