West Brom fine Odemwingie N16.5million
Peter Osaze Odemwingie has been fined two weeks wages – £75,000 (more than N16.5million) – by West Brom, for attempting to force a move to Queens Park Rangers, but the Nigerian forward is now available for first team selection.
The 31-year-old drove all the way to Loftus Road onn transfer deadline day without Albion’s permission, but the deal never happened.
“West Brom have taken disciplinary action against striker Peter Odemwingie in respect of his conduct over the past fortnight,” the club confirmed.
“Odemwingie has accepted his punishment. He will now resume full training with his team-mates and is available for first-team selection.”
In reaction to the fine he received, Odemwingie said: “I understand how my actions have been viewed and I want to apologise to the club and our supporters for any distress I have caused.
“I want to reassure everyone at the club and our fans that I will continue to give my all whenever I am selected. We have enjoyed a good season so far and I aim to play my part in keeping the club as high up the table as possible.”
Albion chairman Jeremy Peace added: “This has been an extremely difficult time for the club and it was imperative that we dealt with such a serious matter both fully and correctly.
“We made our position very clear throughout – both privately to Peter and publicly. Peter has apologised for his conduct to me personally and the club and our supporters as a whole.
“He has accepted his punishment and promised to comply with all club regulations moving forward. It was important that we resolved this episode as expediently as possible to enable everyone to focus on the most important issue at this club – competing in the Premier League.
