Odemwingie relishing fresh start

Peter Odemwingie says he is ready for a fresh start after completing his move from West Bromwich Albion to Cardiff City.

Peter Odemwingie is one of Cardiff's new faces.
Peter Odemwingie is hoping to rebuild his career in Wales.

Odemwingie, 32, saw himself ostracised at the Hawthorns after an embarrassing situation in January following interest from Queens Park Rangers. Without permission, the striker drove to Loftus Road only to be ordered back as no deal was agreed.

He finally exited at the end of the summer transfer window when he rejected late interest from Stoke City and West Ham to join Cardiff and is now eager to begin his new life in Wales.

He told BBC Sport: "It's a fresh start, a whole new beginning. I've joined a club with a strong determination to achieve their goals. I'd like to thank the West Brom fans and staff for everything.

"I'll definitely take with me the positives and great memories. Cardiff City showed great intent to bring me here. I have to thank the manager and everyone involved in making this transfer happen.

"There are talented and dedicated players in the team, everyone is moving in the right direction and I also want to make a strong contribution as well."

He added: "I have a bright start ahead of me. There's no point looking back or worry over something you can't change. It's all in my past."
