Wigan Athletic have had a bid rejected by West Brom for striker Peter Odemwingie.
A statement on the West Brom official site reads:
ALBION have rejected out of hand an offer from Wigan for striker Peter Odemwingie.
Last season’s 15-goal top scorer currently has two years left on his contract and is in advanced talks with the Baggies over an improved deal.
Sporting & Technical Director Dan Ashworth insists the Baggies have no plans to sell Odemwingie, who is in a race to be fit for Sunday’s season opener against Manchester United (ko 4pm).
‘This summer, we have made it our No.1 priority to keep our core players – like Peter – and strengthen the squad around them as we endeavour to firmly establish this club in the Barclays Premier League,’ said Ashworth.
