Steve Clarke says that he is "pleased" that the club have dealt with Peter Odemwingie and intends to "move on" from the incident.

West Bromwich Albion head coach Steve Clarke has insisted that he intends to "move on" from the controversy surrounding striker Peter Odemwingie.

The 31-year-old has been disciplined by the club after he tried to orchestrate a deadline-day move to Queens Park Rangers, despite not receiving permission from the Baggies.

"I don't think you can say everything is back to normal because what happened, the whole episode, is something that didn't need to happen," Clarke said in a press conference.

"[But] I'm really pleased the club have come out with this statement because it gives me the chance as a head coach to move on. That's what myself and the players need to do."

Odemwingie apologised to the club and the fans today for his controversial actions.
