Former Super Eagles striker Peter Osaze Odemwingie will return to West Brom next month, as he will feature in a Charity game in a tribute to club legend and mascot, Richard Eades.

According to Birmingham Live, the Nigerian is looking forward to ‘putting on the Blue and White stripes’ of the Baggies in the tribute game.

Eades, 42, died before the club’s boxing day game against Everton.

Odemwingie who now plays for Indonesian First Division side Madura FC United, will join other former West Brom stars like Darren Moore, Lee Hughes, Russell Hoult and Kevin Donovan who will form an All-Stars side to play at Halesowen Town on April 29 against Boing FC in a game geared to raise funds for Richard Eades, formerly the Albie mascot at the Hawthorns.
The late Eades was also manager of Boing FC which is the club’s supporters club team.

Odemwingie also played for Cardiff City, Bristol City, Stoke City and Rotherham United in the United Kingdom
