Osaze Odemwingie has fired his agents following his prolonged and debatable choice to force a move to Premier League bottom club Queens Park Rangers in January.
The West Brom striker is now working with high-profile football agent Rob Segal after leaving his former team.
Odemwingie who fell out with the Super Eagles captain before the African Cup of Nations, went on twitter to confirm the news on Friday.
“I have sacked my agents. They at my gate begging 4 permission to negotiate a comeback,” Odemwingie tweeted.

West Brom coach Steve Clarke was apparently the one who advised Odemwingie switch agents after his efforts to force a move to Loftus Road caused a verbal war between the player and the club.
According to reports, the former Lille and Lokomotiv Moscow star had been represented by a team of agents who had been with him since early in his career but the Baggies claimed he was ‘badly advised’ during the transfer window.
