The controversial Nigerian attacker completed a deadline day £2.5million switch to the south of Wales from the Midlands after falling out of favour at the Hawthorns.
Odemwingie became the newly promoted club’s eighth signing of the summer, and is seen as a player that can add experience and attacking flair to their squad as they look to avoid an immediate return to the Championship.
Speaking to the club’s official website, the 32-year-old revealed that he was very happy to have finalised the move.
“I’m delighted to complete my move to Cardiff City. I’m looking forward to this fresh start at a Club that is really going places, a team that’s progressing fast,” he said.
“I’ve seen a little bit of the City and I know that my wife and I will really enjoy living in Cardiff. I can’t wait to get started – this move makes me very happy.”
Odemwingie fell down the pecking order with West Brom following his antics during the January transfer window.
The versatile forward drove to QPR’s Loftus Road stadium in a bid to push through a late move to the London club, despite not having permission to complete a move.
