is Lokomotiv Moscow's Peter Odemwingie leaving?

Rumours are swirling that Lokomotiv Moscow’s Peter Odemwingie could be headed to English Premier League sides West Ham, Newcastle or Everton.

While the Merseyside club Everton has faced a debilitating series of injuries at striker, their manager David Moyes has denied looking to spend cash to bring anyone in and making healthy use of their superb youth program. However Newcastle is buoyed with the decision of owner Mike Ashley taking the club off the market as well as looking to invest and would relish the opportunity to unite him with fellow Nigerian international Obafemi Martins.

Lokomotiv president Nikolai Naumov takes a firm stance in negotiations as he has stated he is not interested in loans and deals strictly with formal offers from clubs.
