Nigerian Striker Osaze Odemwingie Signs For Bristol City

Bristol City have signed striker, Osaze Odemwingie on loan from Stoke City for the remainder of the season.

The 34-year-old Nigeria international has failed to score in eight appearances for the potters this season.

Odemwingie moved to stoke in January 2014 as part of a player-exchange with Kenwyne Jones going in the opposite direction to Cardiff City.

He, however, missed most of the 2014/2015 season because of a knee ligament injury.

Odemwingie, who goes into city’s squad for Saturday’s game against Fulham, enjoyed his most prolific spell in England at West Brom where he netted 31 goals in 90 appearances.

Bristol head coach, Lee Johnson, told club website, “I’m looking forward to working with him.

“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.”

Bristol City are currently 20th in the English Championship, with 37 points from 36 games.
