West Bromwich Albion will not allow want-away front man Peter Odemwingie to leave the Hawthorns this summer until they receive a offer that meets their valuation of the player, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.
The controversial Nigeria international caused outrage in the Midlands last season when trying to force through a move to Queens Park Rangers on the final day of the January transfer window.
However, the Baggies are now adamant that the 31-year-old will have to remain at the club until a potential buyer for the striker stumps up the right amount of money for the player, who still has a year left on his current deal at the Hawthorns.
“We have a player who is under contract until the end of the season,” West Brom chairman Jeremy Peace told the Birmingham Mail.
“Unless something comes in to change our way of thinking he will be back in pre-season and we will deal with that.”
