The 36-year-old has a track record of bizarre behaviour on Deadline Day having famously driven to QPR in 2013 to force a move through from the Baggies.

That 120-mile journey to west London, however, has been dwarfed by Odemwingie’s pilgrimage to Catalonia today.

Odemwingie is so desperate for the move he’s crossed two continents

Odemwingie’s agent Lee Satchell said: “Peter is confident a deal can go through.

“He still feels he’s got a lot to offer and reckons Barca must be impressed by his eight league goals in his last four seasons in England and the way he’s tearing up the Indonesian top flight.

“Rotherham and Madura United are natural stepping stones to Barcelona and, let’s be honest, MSO sounds way better than MSN, doesn’t it?”

Barcelona’s officials have admitted they had to Google who Odemwingie was when questioned about the reports.
