Peter Odemwingie IsFit Again, Set To Join A New Club

Super Eagles veteran striker, Peter Osaze Odemwingie is on the verge of joining Bolton Wanderers as he undergoes a medical.

The 35-year-old forward has been without a club since leaving Stoke City in the summer, having spent much of last season on loan at Bristol City.

After a lengthy spell with injuries and loss of form, the former Nigerian fan favourite is scheduled to train with the trotters over the weekend and could make his debut in League One at Bury on Monday, Stoke Sentinel writes.

Never one to doubt his ability, the former Bendel Insurance and Lille striker earlier this week expressed the belief that he still has a lot to offer.

“It’s tough being a free agent but I’m in great shape and hopefully a move should happen this week,” he said.

“Mentally and physically I feel strong, when your body and heart is perfectly prepared then you wouldn’t lack the right motivation to succeed.

“As you grow older it becomes tougher in football, you only need someone to believe in you and willing to take a chance.

“I still have a lot to offer a team and I only need to show what I can do somewhere for people to believe that.”

Odemwingie proved to be an inspired signing for Mark Hughes following his move from Cardiff City three years ago, providing pace and energy as the Potters finished in the top half of the table for three straight seasons.

He also became the first Stoke City player to score in the World Cup after his strike in Nigeria’s 1-0 win over Bosnia Herzegovina in Brazil 2014.
