Osaze Odemwingie has hinted he may buy himself out of his West Brom contract in another Twitter outburst on Tuesday.
The 31-year-old Nigeria striker has 15 months remaining of his four-year deal at The Hawthorns.
But under article 17 of FIFA’s transfer regulations, 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 andtransfer 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.
West Brom have already declared the Nigeria international will be sanctioned over his latest Twitter attacks on the club.
Osaze hit out at being only a substitute in recent games and for the club allegedly questioning his commitment.
He had tried to force a transfer to Queens Park Rangers in January but West Brom blocked the move.
