Hoilett scuppered QPR move for West Brom striker Odemwingie

QPR winger Junior Hoilett is being blamed for Peter Odemwingie's amazing transfer deadline day antics at West Bromwich Albion.

The clubs were thought to have agreed a fee of £3million fee plus Hoilett but the Canada winger refused to move.

"Odemwingie should have behaved better," former Arsenal defender Martin Keown told BBC radio 5 Live. "He's a good player but can be replaced by West Brom. It's clear the move is all about the money."

QPR were ready to treble the 31-year-old's £15,000-a-week wages but had to back off once lawyers became involved.

Arsenal ace Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain joked on Twitter: "Does Odemwingie need a place to stay tonight?"
