Nigeria marksman is desperate to depart the Midlands.
West Bromwich Albion will not allow want-away front man Peter Odemwingie to leave the Hawthorns this summer until they receive a offer that meets their valuation of the player, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.
The controversial Nigeria international caused outrage in the Midlands last season when trying to force through a move to Queens Park Rangers on the final day of the January transfer window.
However, the Baggies are now adamant that the 31-year-old will have to remain at the club until a potential buyer for the striker stumps up the right amount of money for the player, who still has a year left on his current deal at the Hawthorns.
“We have a player who is under contract until the end of the season,” West Brom chairman Jeremy Peace told the Birmingham Mail.
“Unless something comes in to change our way of thinking he will be back in pre-season and we will deal with that.
“We took a view at the end of January – not only for the reasons of Peter Odemwingie, or QPR, or whichever agents were involved who acted disgracefully, but for the long term of this football club – that we have to behave a certain way.
“If we don’t do that they will all be knocking on the door. Unless we get an offer we’re happy with we won’t sell him.”
Odemwingie has found the back of the net on 31 occasions in his 89 appearances in all competitions for West Brom since arriving at the club from Lokomotiv Moscow for £4 million in Aug 2010.
