Dubai-based Al Nasr remain hopeful of signing Peter Odemwingie despite West Bromwich Albion rejecting an £850,000 offer, a club source told Gulf News.

The local Express & Star newspaper reported on Friday that West Brom are seeking £2 million for the 32-year-old, who is currently training with the reserves.

A number of Premier League clubs — including Crystal Palace, Sunderland and Fulham — also retain an interest in the Nigeria forward, who has been seeking an exit since January, when he failed in a high-profile attempt to join Queens Park Rangers.

An Al Nasr source told Gulf News: “Fulham and Sunderland have joined us so it’s more complicated now, but we still want to keep on negotiating. We think we can get him for less than £2 million but it depends on the club [Al Nasr] if they want to go higher and then it depends on the player.”
