Swap deal: Osaze Odemwingie joins Stoke as Kewyne Jones signs for Cardiff

Super Eagles striker Osaze Odemwingie has joined Stoke City from Cardiff in a swap deal that has seen Kewyn Jones move to Cardiff city from Stoke.

The 32-year old Nigerian international have struggled to get into the Cardiff city starting line-up since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over.

While, Trinidad and Tobago striker Jones was frozen out of the Stoke City team after sending a text to his manager, Mark Hughes that he is not available for selection against Liverpool.

Stoke boss Mark Hughes said: "We're delighted to have signed Peter."

He added: "Things haven't perhaps gone as well for him at Cardiff as he would have hoped and he's really keen to start afresh with us."

Odemwingie has agreed an 18-month deal with the club, but Cardiff have not disclosed how long Jones has signed for.

Announcing the move on their website,  Cardiff said Jones would be available for selection on Saturday, when the Bluebirds hosted Norwich.

Odemwingie, who scored just two goals in 17 matches for Cardiff following his £2m switch from West Brom, could feature for his new side in Wednesday's Premier League game at Sunderland.

Jones became Stoke's record signing in August 2010, when he joined from Sunderland for £8m, and scored 26 goals in 115 appearances.
