West Brom's Peter Odemwingie shrugs off interest from Juventus

Is that Turin calling? Peter Odemwingie has attracted interest from Juventus after netting 11 goals in his debut season in the Premier League

West Brom's leading scorer Peter Odemwingie is poised to remain at the Hawthorns despite interest from Juventus.

Odemwingie has scored 11 goals in his debut season with the Baggies and has been reported to be on the radar of the Italian giants.

But his agent David Omigie is adamant Odemwingie is content with life at the Hawthorns and will only leave if Albion decide they want to dispense with his services.

He said: 'Peter has a contract with West Brom, where he is very happy. There has been no contact with us and the only people who can say whether there has been any interest in Peter are West Brom.

'West Brom haven't told us about anything and Peter is really enjoying himself there and doing very well. He will be happy staying there unless West Brom tell us otherwise.'

Nigeria international Odemwingie has often stressed that he is happy at Albion since his ?2-million move from Lokomotiv Moscow last summer.

He indicated at the weekend that his main focus was to achieve a career best 15 goals in a campaign and to keep West Brom in the top flight.
