Osaze Odemwingie joins Bristol City

Nigeria striker, Osaze , has swapped the Barclays Premier League for the Championship after he joined Bristol City on loan for the remainder of the season from Stoke City.

Odemwingie, who moved to Stoke in January 2014 from Cardiff City as part of a player- exchange with Kenwyne Jones, has featured sparingly for the potters this term due to injury.

The former West Brom forward who scored 31 goals in 90 appearances for the Baggies, will head straight into the Bristol City squad.

“I’m looking forward to working with him” Robins head coach Lee Johnson told the club’s website.

“I’m delighted we’ve been able to bring someone of Peter’s quality in; he’ll provide us with experience and hopefully goals in one form or another.”

Meanwhile, Stoke boss, Mark Hughes, confirmed on Friday that Odemwingie has played his last game for the club.

The 34-year-old contract at the Britannia expires at the end of the season and Hughes disclosed it won’t be renewed.

“Pete is in a situation where he’s at the end of his contract and isn’t going to be re-contracted here,” Hughes on Friday.

“There was an opportunity to allow him to go out and play football and his opportunities here from now until the end of the season are going to be few and far between.”
