Cardiff City have confirmed the arrival of Peter Odemwingie from West Bromwich Albion on a two-year contract.
Both the player and his agent revealed on a busy transfer deadline day that a deal had been done, and the Bluebirds have announced that the striker has become their eighth signing of the summer.
Odemwingie completed a medical on Monday and is now waiting on Premier League ratification before opening a new chapter in his colourful career in South Wales.
Cardiff are delighted to have acquired the services of a proven goalscorer, with the 32-year-old having netted 30 top-flight goals in three seasons at The Hawthorns.
Odemwingie had been looking for a route out of West Brom for some time, having decided that he needed a ‘fresh start’, and he cannot wait to get going at an ambitious club determined to establish themselves among the elite.
He told Cardiff City Player: “I’m delighted to complete my move to Cardiff City. I’m looking forward to this fresh start at a club that is really going places, a team that’s progressing fast.
“My father-in-law is a City fan and he’s told me what a great club this is. I’m looking forward to meeting up with the boys and then start preparing for the trip to Hull after the international break.
“I’ve seen a little bit of the city and I know that my wife and I will really enjoy living in Cardiff. I can’t wait to get started – this move makes me very happy.”
