Odemwingie also strongly refuted claims of a breakdown in relations between himself and the club over the summer.
He told The Express and Star: "Summer was a time when, at my age, I had second thoughts about continuing to play at this level.
"I thought there would be nothing new for me at West Brom and I gave it a try [asked about leaving] to see what would happen.
"But the club said that it was too early for me to go and they thought I could play an important role for them and keep playing.
"Then pre-season started and I got hungry again for Premier League action and I forgot about it.
"I don't know where [talk of the bust-up] came from. People would have seen afterwards if there was a problem.
"We sat down and had a normal talk. He was the new coach and he said: 'Give me a few weeks and see how we work, because we're ambitious for this year'.
"I said I would give it a couple of weeks and after that I was enjoying training and it looked like it was going to be an interesting season, so I forgot about the offer."
