Nigeria and West Brom striker, Peter Odemwingie has given the most candid statement yet on his future at Premiership side, West Brom, when he stated in an interview that he needs a new challenge.
After two seasons, where he emerged as top goal scorer - 15 in his first season and 10 in the season just ended, Odemwingie believes he needs to move to a bigger club so that he can win trophies.
“It is time for me to struggle for silverware not just for survival in the Premier League,” the Nigerian said to The Sun.
“I hope I will leave West Brom keeping warm relations with everybody," Odemwingie added. “I would consider any proposals — even from Russia. But my aim is to stay in England.”
This revelation comes on the heels of West Brom losing their manager, Roy Hodgson to England. Odemwingie was excused from Nigeria's Africa Cup of Nations and World Cup qualifiers in June and this statement is sure to have alerted some Premiership clubs on his availability though he just signed a new contract with West Brom which runs until 2015.
