After leaving Rotherham United last month, former West Bromwich Albion and Stoke City striker Peter Odemwingie has hinted at a move to Leeds United by liking a tweet.
The 35-year-old surprisingly joined the Millers in October this season on a short term contract but his time in South Yorkshire was not successful. Odemwingie made just three starts and was shown a straight red card in a 2-1 loss to Leeds in November. With seven appearances for Rotherham since signing, the striker informed caretaker manager Paul Warne he would not be staying at the club via text message.
The Nigerian international, who is now a free agent and is looking for a club, is renowned for his transfer antics. In 2013, after falling out of favour at West Brom, Odemwingie took it upon himself to drive to Queen’s Park Rangers on transfer deadline day in a bid to force a move to Loftus Road. It didn’t work.
It now appears the former Lille star would be interested in a move to Elland Road. Today, Odemwingie liked the following tweet:
A move to Leeds United would be risky for the club with the striker’s temperamental behaviour but the free agent would provide a wealth of experience and knows where the net is. Odemwingie has played in the top divisions of Belgium, France, Russia and England and has accumulated over 400 professional appearances. At the Baggies, the forward scored 25 goals in his first two seasons in the Premier League.
Leeds United are currently fifth in the Championship and entertain Bristol City tonight, where Odemwingie spent time on loan last season.
