West Brom reject Peter Odemwingie's transfer request

Sport | Published:

West Brom today turned down a transfer request from Peter Odemwingie.

Albion recently rejected an offer from QPR for the Nigeria international and the club insist none of their core players are for sale. Harry Redknapp's relegation-threatened club have so far bid £2m for the 31-year-old but the Baggies are refusing to budge.

Albion chief Richard Garlick said: "Peter is hugely popular with our supporters and it is disappointing that he has decided to hand in a transfer request.

"It was immediately turned down and has done nothing to change our stance during January.

"Peter is under contract until the summer of 2014 and we have no need or desire to sell our core players.

"We want to keep the squad intact to enable us to build on an encouraging first six months of the season."
