WEST Brom manager, Steve Clarke, expects bigger things from Nigerian striker, Osaze Odemwingie when the English Premier League begins on August 18.
Clark told the club's website that he is unaware Odemwingie plans to quit the club during the summer market.
Odemwingie, since joining the club two seasons ago, has been the team's highest scorer but the player last month hinted he hoped to play for a title-chasing club, preferably, abroad.
''I believe I still have the attention of (Peter) Odemwingie, Chris Brunt and (Jerome) Thomas. For Peter, there have been off-season stories about him but I am quite clear in my mind that he will continue to play for us and achieve a legend status,'' Clark said.
Russian media claimed that Odemwingie was planning a return to the country after a discussion with West Brom.
''I have already discussed my decision with the management of West Brom. They know that I honestly struggled for two seasons on the field for the team, not sparing my physical conditions,'' Odemwingie was quoted to have told bobsoccer.ru.
But now the time has come when I want to fight for the title, but not for survival . Even though my contract with West Brom is designed for two more years, I hope for understanding from the club. I think we agree - and I leave the club, maintaining good relations with all,'' Odemwingie told bobsoccer.ru.Share
