The Nigerian signs for the Blue Birds on a two-year-deal.
West Bromwich Albion striker Peter Odemwingie has joined Premier League new boys Cardiff City for £2.25m and signs a two-year contract with the Blue Birds, reports the BBC.
The 32-year-old has been exiled at the Hawthorns ever since trying to force through a move to QPR back in January and conducting an interview with Sky Sports claiming the forward had joined the Hoops, only for manager Harry Redknapp to announce the boss knew of no such deal.
Baggies head coach Steve Clarke made it clear to Odemwingie that it would be difficult for the West Brom faithful to forgive the Nigerian for than indiscretion and the African became a bit part player ever since.
Finally the attacker can put the last difficult six months in Birmingham behind the Nigeria international, as the striker makes the switch to the Welsh capital to help the side’s bid to stay in the English top tier.
Odemwingie will join an already bolstered attacking line that includes Fraizer Campbell – scorer of two goals in the 3-2 win over Manchester City – Rudy Gestede, Nicky Maynard, Joe Mason and £7.5m summer signing Andreas Cornelius.
Cardiff have started their first season in the Premier League steadily, with an impressive victory over City sandwiched between a defeat to West Ham United and a draw at home with Everton.
Odemwingie has spent three years in the division since joining West Brom from Lokomotiv Moscow in 2010 and has since scored 31 goals in 90 matches in all competitions.
