The transfer of Nigeria’s international striker, Peter Odemwingie, from West Bromwich Albion to Cardiff is being investigated by the Football Association (England FA).
The Vanguard newspaper quotes British tabloid, the Daily Mail, as saying that Odemwingie is embroiled in a legal dispute with Rob Segal, who represented him in that September 2013 move, over the payment of agents’ fees.
The Nigeria striker’s subsequent January move to Stoke is also part of the dispute.
The matter has been transferred to an FA tribunal.
West Bromwich have not yet commented on the matter but there isn’t any suggestion of wrong-doing on their part.
Odemwingie was part of the Nigeria squad that reached the round of 16 at the 2014 Fifa World Cup.
He scored the Super Eagles’ lone goal against Bosnia-Herzegovina in Brazil has been capped 65 times by Nigeria at the senior level.
