Odemwingie set for contract talks

West Brom striker Peter Odemwingie's representatives will hold fresh talks with the club over a new contract for the Nigerian international during the next few days.

Odemwingie had a memorable first season for the Baggies, scoring 15 goals and playing a major role in keeping them in the Premier League.

The 29-year-old has a year left of his current contract plus a 12 month option. But Albion are keen for the player to sign an improved long-term deal to stave off interest from other clubs.

Odemwingie said: ''A few days ago, I was supposed to have a meeting with the West Brom leadership on the current contract. However, it did not take place and the meeting has been rescheduled for the next couple of days (with his representative).''

Meanwhile, Japan goalkeeper Eiji Kawashima has claimed he wants to move to the Hawthorns.

"Everything is in place and I'd like to finalise the transfer before the end of June," Kawashima told the Sankei Sports newspaper. "It's always important to be playing but of course the Premier League is a higher level. Even if I was reserve keeper (at West Brom) I would like to try."

Kawashima would become the second player from his country to play for West Brom - after midfielder Junichi Inamoto - if the deal goes through.
