Odemwingie suffered a knee injury in Saturday's Premier League match against Manchester City and he will require surgery that will sideline him for a number of weeks.

Manager Mark Hughes noted that it will take a few weeks for the swelling to go down in Odemwingie's knee before he can begin to work his way back. With the injury, Odemwingie was left out of the 25-man squad that Stoke City submitted to the Premier League on Wednesday.

Odemwingie officially joined Stoke City on Tuesday.

Odemwingie joins Stoke, while Kenwye Jones was sent back to Cardiff. The former has only one goal in Premier League play this season and it's difficult to see his fantasy value significantly increasing in the short term.

Odemwingie is expected to join Stoke City as part of a player swap, the South Wales Echo reports. Odemwingie will join Stoke City and Cardiff City will receive striker Kenwyne Jones in return, pending both players passing medicals and agreeing to the terms.

Odemwingie has scored only one goal in 15 Premier League appearances for Cardiff City this season. His fantasy value will remain low as he will take time to adjust to playing with his new team.
