thumbnail Hello,

With just days to the closure of the transfer window, the Nigerian may be able to depart for Wales

West Brom outcast Peter Odemwingie is wanted by Swansea boss, Michael Laudrup as the clock starts winding down on the summer transfer window.

The window is expected to close on September 2 in the English Premier League and Odemwingie is desperate to end the hell that has been the Hawthorns since last January when he desperately tried to engineer a last minute move to Queens Park Rangers.

"We want to add one more who can give us that in a certain part of the game or in certain games," Laudrup told the South Wales Evening Post.

"And he (Odemwingie) is a player with pace who knows the league,” he added.

The valuation of £2 million has put off the likes of Stoke City, Cardiff City and Crystal Palace who all want the Nigerian on their roster.

The 32-year-old won two Player of the Month awards in the 2010/11 season for the Baggies and ended the season with 15 goals. He scored ten goals in the 2011/12 season but scored just five goals last season.
