Russian Premier League outfit Rubin Kazan are eyeing West Brom striker Peter Odemwingie, according to Calcio Mercato.
Odemwingie almost left the Hawthornes last month, but saw a late deal to QPR fall through, leaving him heading back to West Brom after appearing to think the transfer was all but done on deadline day.
He made his return to action for the Baggies at the weekend, but received a frosty reception from the club faithful.
Odemwingie was born in the former Soviet Union and played his youth football in Russia, while he has also turned out in the Russian Premier League with Lokomotiv Moscow, the club he left to join West Brom in 2010.
It remains to be seen whether the 31-year-old would be open to heading to Rubin Kazan, especially as he appeared to have his heart set on joining QPR.
Rubin Kazan currently sit seventh in the Russian Premier League; the second half of the country’s top flight season is not sue to start until early March.
