Peter Odemwingie reacts on Twitter after deadline day move from Stoke City falls through

Peter Odemwingie looked set to leave Stoke City to join Marseille yesterday.

Peter Odemwingie insists that he is pleased to have stayed with Stoke City after his failure to complete a move to Marseille on deadline day.

Odemwingie was expected to leave the Britannia Stadium yesterday to move to the French club, but no deal materialised.

And the Nigerian striker insists that he is now ready to fight for his place in Mark Hughes’ squad.

Odemwingie has struggled for appearances at Stoke so far this season, due to the increasing quality in Hughes’ squad.

With the likes of Xherdan Shaqiri, Bojan and Marko Arnautovic all available, Odemwingie has dropped down the pecking order.

The former West Bromwich Albion man has played just seven times in all competitions, and he hasn’t made a Premier League start all season.

Stoke’s only piece of business on deadline day came in the form of Giannelli Imbula, who joined the Potters from Porto in a club record transfer.
