West Brom chairman Jeremy Peace said on Tuesday that Nigerian striker Peter Odemwingie will have to return to the club, adding that no clubs have expressed interest in signing him in the summer.

The 33-year-old was on the verge of joining Queens Park Rangers last January but the move eventually fell through.

Odemwingie, who made few appearances in the second half of last season, has been linked with moves to Hull City, Swansea City and Crystal Palace but West Brom said no official approach was made from any club.

"We have a player who is under contract until the end of the season," Peace was quoted as saying by Sky Sports on Tuesday.

"Unless something comes in to change our way of thinking he will be back in pre-season and we will deal with that.

"We took a view at the end of January - not only for the reasons of Peter Odemwingie, or QPR, or whichever agents were involved who acted disgracefully, but for the long term of this football club - that we have to behave a certain way.

"If we don't do that they will all be knocking on the door. Unless we get an offer we're happy with we won't sell him."
