Odemwingie's future at the Hawthorns has been the subject of conjecture since he failed to secure a move to Queens Park Rangers in January.

The Nigerian international claimed last week that he was almost certain to leave the club this summer after coming in for criticism from Baggies fans.

Clarke has now conceded that Odemwingie, who came off the bench in Sunday's defeat to Norwich, will move on at the end of the season.

The Baggies boss admitted for the first time publicly that he does not expect the 31-year-old to be part of his squad next season.

"His future will be decided in the summer," said Clarke.

"Do I think he will be a West Brom player next season? No, I don't.

"I don't do the deals, I'm the head coach, but I was asked a question and I gave an honest answer.

"I don't think he will be here next season."

t all started going downhill when they started putting a photo of the writer along side their story. Journalists started to think that 'they' are the story, rather than what they write. Smug, self obsessed & up their own arse's. That sums up the majority of newspaper sports reporters.

he reason so much sh*t is written about football is because there are so many people who want to read sh*t about football. Now shut up, take my money, and tell me Ronaldo is going to sign for Van Haal and that Mick McCarthy is signing Peter Crouch on loan.
