Former Stoke City, West Brom and Cardiff City forward Peter Osaze Odemwingie says he still has the class of a top striker, and it is part of the reasons why he snubbed League one side Bolton Wanderers for Championship side Rotherham United.

The 35-year-old was a free agent after being released by Stoke in the summer and becomes new manager Kenny Jackett’s first signing, just days after taking charge.

He said: “Rotherham and Bolton showed interest over the weekend. Time is not on my side at my age and the Championship is a bit closer to where I wish to be.

“Thanks to Bolton for their interest in me but I’m really pleased to join Rotherham. Kenny showed some interest in me a few months ago and we have been in touch since then. I am pleased he got a job and he offered me a contract.

“My intuition said I’d be fine and that something would come along eventually. Playing well in the Premier League is still helping me now. Class is permanent, form is temporary, so I just need to find my form. All the movements are still there.”
