Odemwingie to depart West Brom this summer

Peter Odemwingie says he expects to leave West Bromwich Albion this summer.

The 31-year old striker was apparently close to a move to QPR on deadline day in January but it never eventuated, however, he believes he will be able to leave The Hawthorns this time around in order to get some regular game time.

"It looks like I will leave the Hawthorns. We are talking now - but where I'll end up I don't know," Odemwingie told the BBC when working as a pundit for Nigeria's Confederations Cup match against Tahiti.

"I want playing time. Even if it is a team that is not so good, from the Championship - I will go there as I just want to play.

"I thought things could be done easier, there was a new manager who came in and it didn't go in my favour. I was moved out of my position. I made a name for scoring goals.

"I got used to winning player-of-the-month awards. But I'd have a few games, I was in form, but didn't play - I wanted to move on."
