New Cardiff City signing Peter Odemwingie believes that West Bromwich Albion need to take part of the blame for his fall-out with the club.

New Cardiff City forward Peter Odemwingie has admitted that he made mistakes during the fall-out at West Bromwich Albion, but believes that the club needs to take part of the blame.

The 32-year-old left The Hawthorns for Cardiff on deadline day following a dispute within the club that arose when he was denied a move to Queens Park Rangers in January.

"I have a lot to thank the club for, maybe not everything," Odemwingie said in a press conference. "Overall, we're both disappointed in how things ended up.

"To me, the fans are more important than the people who decide things in the club and I don't think we regret the three seasons that we had with each other.

"We're all human, we all make mistakes, and I believe that mistakes were made on the side of West Brom as well."

Odemwingie has also revealed that a number of clubs wanted to sign him in the summer.
