Baggies keen to keep striker
West Bromwich Albion,
West Brom boss Steve Clarke has dismissed rumours that Peter Odemwingie is about to leave the club and join a Premier League rival.
Qatari club Al-Gharafa made a £4m offer for the striker last month but that was dismissed out of hand by the Baggies chief who says they are not interested in selling him.
Fulham and Sunderland have both been linked with the Nigerian international but Clarke says the 31-year-old is staying put at the Hawthorns.
He told the Express and Star: "I think you're always going to have speculation about your good players," he said. "It wouldn't be football otherwise, especially with it being the summer when the transfer window is open.
"Your good players are always going to be linked with other clubs. There was one bid that came in for Peter, but it wasn't from an English club. We turned it down - and I think that says enough."
