West Bromwich Albion striker Peter Odemwingie says he has been told not to return to training until next week.
The 31-year-old tried to force a move to QPR on transfer deadline day by arriving at Loftus Road but the Baggies said no fee had been agreed and he was not free to discuss personal terms.
Speaking outside the West Brom training ground on Friday, Odemwingie said: "I have been given a few days off and will be back in training next week."
However, although Odemwingie regrets his actions in travelling to London, he insists his long-term future remains away from The Hawthorns.
"I am a very emotional person who sometimes doesn't think," he told Sky Sports News on Friday.
"I will still leave the club. It is only a matter of time."
