Embattled former Super Eagles striker, Osaze Odemwingie has been given a lifeline to remain in the English Premier League.
Cardiff signed Osaze for £2.5 million from West Brom, where he fell out of favour at the Hawthorns after unsuccessfully trying to force a move to Queens Park Rangers in January.
He was subsequently frozen out of the first team at West Brom. He was also linked with some clubs including Crystal Palace and Swansea City.
Osaze has played for top teams such as La Louviere, Lille of France, Lokomotiv Moscow and Bendel Insurance of Benin City, Nigeria. He played for the Super Eagles till the era of former Coach, Samson Siasia, who was sacked after failing to lead the team to the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations.
