Deal Close: Stoke ready to complete deal for winger today

OdemwingieThe Stoke City fans in The Transfer Tavern are all gathered around the pool table discussing a midfielder’s potential move away from the club.

Sky Sports are reporting that Peter Odemwingie in set to join Marseille on a loan deal until the end of the season.

The French side made their move for the player late last night and the player is set to travel to France for a medical.

Odemwingie has had a contriversial career during his time in the Premier League,and become a bit of a joke figure to fans after travelling down to London and speaking to reporters about a done deal which would see the player move from West Bromwich Albion to QPR, which was a move that in fact failed to materialise.

Odemwingie will become the second player Marseille have signed from the Premier League during this window following the signing of Florian Thauvin from Newcastle on a similar deal.

The Stoke fans in The Tavern are pleased the Nigerian is leaving the club as they do not see him breaking into their side anytime soon.

Stoke fans, do you expect a busy day today? Let us know in the comments below!
