FINALLY OSAZIE ODENWINGIE SEALS A £2.5 MILLION MOVE TO CARDIFF CITY
Nigeria international Osazie Peter Odemwingie has finally sealed a £2.5million move to Premier League new boys Cardiff, having agreed a transfer away from West Brom.
Odemwingie's fee is said to be around £1million less than what West Brom wanted earlier this week, with the former Lokomotiv Moscow goal poacher signing a three-year deal.
Stoke City were interested in the Baggies outcast, (who is also an outcast in the super eagles of Nigeria) and although the Potters were nervous about the signing because of his indiscipline last season, boss Mark Hughes wants him at the Britannia.
Odemwingie’s West Bromwich career was totally over after his failed move to QPR in January and a number of clubs were preparing to offer him a lifeline.
But Bluebirds boss Malky Mackay secured the striker's signature from the hands of a host of competitors.
