The 34-year-old striker joined the Championship outfit late last week and made his debut when coming off the bench to help Lee Johnson’s side to a 2-1 win at Fulham.

Odemwingie is out of contract at the end of the season and hopes to do enough during his time at Ashton Gate to earn a deal elsewhere, preferably in the Premier League.

However Odemwingie is impressed with Bristol City and has hinted at a permanent move.

“I spoke to a couple of people at Stoke who know Bristol City well and they talked well of the club,” he said. “I then spoke to and had text messages with the manager (Lee Johnson) and had a positive feeling after that.

“I’ve told the manager I want promotion and he wants the same. The stadium is almost completed, they want to strengthen the squad and push for the play-offs next season, the finances are there, the city has a lot of potential and the club’s ambition is the same as mine.

“I still see myself as a Premier League player but, sometimes in life, you have to take a step backwards to take two forward.”
