Cardiff Swap Odemwingie for Kenwyne Jones

Stoke City and Cardiff City have agreed to a swap deal with striker Kenwyne Jones heading to Cardiff and winger/forward Peter Odemwingie heading in the opposite direction.

Kenwyne Jones made headlines recently after Stoke City manager Mark Hughes publicly criticised the Trinidadian for his refusal to play for the team in an attempt to force a January transfer. But now it seems the Welshman has decided to exchange him for another player with a troubled off-field past.

Nigerian, Peter Odemwingie, generated his own negative press, and created one of the enduring images of the last January transfer window, by turning up at Loftus Road and being turned away as he didn't have permission to speak with QPR from his, then club, West Bromich Albion.

The forward joined Cardiff from West Brom in the summer, but has since scored just two goals, and was told by coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer he was not part of his plans. Stoke will inherit his two year contract as part of the deal.
