Rotherham United has confirmed the signing of unattached former West Bromwich Albion and Stoke City striker, Peter Odemwingie on a short-term deal until Jan. 2017.

The English Championship side confirmed the signing on its official website.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the 35-year-old is Millers boss, Kenny Jackett, first signing since taking over the Championship’s bottom club on  Oct., replacing Alan Stubbs.

Odemwingie has also played for Russian side, Lokomotiv Moscow, French club Lille and on loan at Bristol City last season.

League One Bolton Wanderers revealed he was training with them on Friday.

But the Bolton News reported that an injury to Wanderers midfielder, Tom Thorpe could force the club to seek to sign a midfielder instead of a forward.
