Odemwingie returns to training after apology to West Brom

Baggies chairman Jeremy Peace confirmed that the matter has now been resolved and the club wish to move on after the striker accepted a reported fine of £75,000

West Brom striker Peter Odemwingie has returned to training with the club after issuing a public apology and accepting disciplinary action.

The 31-year-old's future at the Hawthorns looked in doubt after the forward wrote a series of critical remarks on Twitter and attempted to force a deadline-day move to QPR by driving to London.

However, a transfer did not materialise and the Nigeria striker will now resume full training after apologising and accepting a reported fine of two weeks’ wages totalling £75,000.

“I understand how my actions have been viewed and want to apologise to the club and our supporters for any distress I have caused," Odemwingie told the club's official website.

“I want to reassure everyone at the club and our fans that I will continue to give my all whenever I am selected. We have enjoyed a good season so far and I aim to play my part in keeping the club as high up the table as possible.”

Chairman Jeremy Peace confirmed that the matter has now been resolved and the club wish to move on and concentrate on on-field performances.

“This has been an extremely difficult time for the club and it was imperative that we dealt with such a serious matter both fully and correctly. We have made our position very clear throughout - both privately to Peter and publicly.

“Peter has apologised for his conduct to me personally and the club and our supporters as a whole. He has accepted his punishment and promised to comply with all club regulations moving forward.

“It was important that we resolved this episode as expediently as possible to enable everyone to focus on the most important issue at this club - competing in the Premier League.”
