Sky Bet Championship strugglers Rotherham United have announced the signing of veteran forward Peter Odemwingie on a short-term until January.
The 35-year-old had been heavily linked with a move to League One side Bolton Wanderers last week, after reportedly having trained with Phil Parkinson’s team, but has decided to put pen-to-paper on a deal at the Millers instead.
Rotherham had appointed their new manager, Kenny Jackett, last week after the sacking of Alan Stubbs and the former Millwall and Wolverhampton Wanderers boss completes his first signing in the form of Peter Odemwingie.
The Nigerian international was released by Stoke City during the summer, ending last season on loan at Championship outfit Bristol City.
He also spend time with West Bromwich Albion during his time in the Premier League, and has over 100 top-flight appearances to his name.
Odemwingie has 63 caps for Nigeria, along with several others for the country’s Olympic team.
Rotherham United’s signing of Peter Odemwingie is subject to FA and EFL ratification.
