Odemwingie intent on making an impression at Cardiff
Tuesday 03 September 2013
After completing his deadline day transfer from West Bromwich Albion to Cardiff City, striker Peter Odemwingie has said that he is ‘hungry’ to make an impression in South Wales, the
Daily Express has reported.
The Nigerian arrives at Cardiff after spending seven months on the sidelines at West Brom, making sporadic appearances as a substitute following his attempts to force through a January move to Queens Park Rangers.
Odemwingie’s departure has looked inevitable ever since, and Cardiff snapped him up on deadline day for £2.5m, adding to their current striking options of Fraizer Campbell, Andreas Cornelius, Craig Bellamy, and Nicky Maynard.
And the 32-year-old hopes to make a good impact, after a tumultuous final few months at Albion. He said: "I missed football and I am delighted to come to a fast-progressing team. They have a young manager with a lot of ambition.
"He has done really well in a short period and I hope to help the team become better and I am grateful for the confidence they have shown in me. I am very hungry and I will show the same attitude I had when I was scoring a lot of goals in games in the Premier League."
After joining West Brom from Locomotiv Moscow in the summer of 2010, Odemwingie scored 31 goals in 90 games, becoming the club’s highest Premier League scorer.
