SUPER Eagles winger Osaze Odemwingie provides indications that he hopes to extend his agreement with English Premier League club Stoke City when it expires in the summer despite becoming out of measures with a debilitating hamstring.
In the beginning of the current season in September, Osaze limped off wounded in Premier League match between Stoke and defending champions Manchester City. It was later discovered that he may miss the whole of the 2014/15 season of year after having been ruled out of activity for eight or mmore months with a cruciate knee ligament harm.
Hoping to bounce again, Osaze, who will turn into a free agent in the summertime, said he’d be willing to get started negotiations with Stoke about an expansion. Osaze, 32, is hoping to see at least some action prior to the end of the current season and persuade the club he is worth holding on to.
In January last year, Osaze signed a one-and-a-half year deal with Stoke City completing a switch from Cardiff City that will see him stay at The Potters until the end of the 2014/15 season. Osaze started his profession in Nigeria with Bendel Insurance before changing to Belgian side La Louviere and from then on enjoyed a stint for Lille and Lokomotiv Moscow before he found amove to England to become listed for West Bromwich Albion for £2.5m in the year 2010.
During the last World Cup, Osaze was Nigeria’s stand-out player, scoring the only goal in Nigeria’s lone victory in the tournament, beating his Stoke City teammate Asmir Begovic of Bosnia-Herzegovina. In that match, he was voted man-of-the-match after obtaining more votes than other people from the watching audience.
