Peter Odemwingie: Chance to impress at Hull

Premier League new boys Hull City have confirmed they have taken veteran striker Peter Odemwingie on trial.

The 35-year-old Nigerian is on the look out for a new club this summer following his release by Stoke City at the end of last season, while the Tigers find themselves short on striking options following Sone Aluko’s departure.

Odemwingie is expected to be given a chance to shine in Hull’s friendly at Mansfield on Tuesday, confirmed the club’s official Twitter account.

The forward is now stranger to the Premier League after a fine spell at West Brom, although he struggled to make any real impacts at both Cardiff City and Stoke City since leaving The Hawthorns in 2013, although his spell at the latter was blighted by injury.
