West Brom signs Odemwingie to new contract

West Bromwich inked Peter Odemwingie year contract Thursday.

Odemwingie, 30, had two seasons remaining on his previous contract, but with a significant amount of interest in the striker from other clubs, West Bromwich locked up the man who scored 15 goals for the club last season.

Tottenham and Wigan were among the clubs reportedly interested in Odemwingie, and West Brom turned an offer from Wigan.

"I'm obviously very pleased that Peter has pledged his future to West Bromwich Albion," West Brom manager Roy Hodgson said. "I always believed this would be the case and I am grateful to both him and the club for reaching an agreement.

"We can now look forward to benefiting once again from Peter's goalscoring prowess and seeing him play an important part in our campaign to stay in the Premier League for a second successive season."
