Wigan Athletic poised to return for West Brom star with improved offer

Sources suggest that Wigan Athletic are ready to make an increased offer for West Brom’s striker, Peter Odemwingie, after having a first bid turned down.

The initial bid was reportedly worth £4m, but now understanding the amount of Premier League attention Odemwingie is attracting, Albion have slapped an £8m valuation on their star.

Baggies boss, Roy Hodgson, is ready to offer the Nigerian international a three-year contract worth £40,000-a-week, but talks have apparently stalled between the two parties.

The former Locomotiv Moscow forward claims he is happy at West Brom, but is understood to be tempted by any Premier League top six team interest.
