Peter Odemwingie: Attracting interest from Crystal Palace

Odemwingie is out of favour at the Hawthorns and West Brom are willing to offload the Nigerian.

The 31-year-old has found himself down the pecking order after failing to force through a move to Queens Park Rangers on transfer deadline day in January.

Palace boss Ian Holloway is now ready to offer Odwemwingie an escape route out of West Brom as he looks to bolster his attacking options.

Holloway has already brought in Dwight Gayle from Peterborough this summer and he sees Odemwingie as an ideal foil for the young forward in a new strike partnership.

Talks are thought to be at an advanced stage between both clubs as Palace look to add to their ranks as they prepare for life back in the Premier League.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.
