Former Nigeria striker Osaze Peter Odemwingie has signed one year deal with Madura United, Indonesia. Odemwingie’s signing has an option of extension. Odemwingie had been without a club since leaving Rotherham in January.
“These are exciting times for Indonesian football and I’m happy to be a part of it. Hopefully I can roll back the years by scoring important goals for Madura,” he told BBC Sport.
“I had no idea what it’s like here but I had a brief chat with Michael Essien and he gave me positive feedback,” Odemwingie explained.
“To be regarded as a marquee signing is huge – I’ve played in different European countries but this place is really beautiful – and the people are very friendly. I’ve scored goals at all the top clubs I played and I believe with the help of my teammates I can still do the same here.”
