The 31-year-old Nigerian international has 15 months left on his four-year contract at The Hawthorns but contrary to the club’s position that he will see out his deal, the player has got another plan up his sleeves.
Osaze is looking to take advantage of article 17 of FIFA’s transfer regulations, which state that players over the age of 28 can end their contracts two years after signing for a club by paying a compensation figure determined by their wages and transfer fee.
“I see a free player. A player who buys out his contract soon. Or a retired player. Does he look like he cares much? They made him not to,” Odemwingie tweeted.
Already, West Brom has fined him £76,000 for his latest Twitter attacks on the club where he lamented being used mostly as a substitute in recent times despite the fact that both sides had agreed to bury the hatchet.
