Peter Odemwingie is set to retire from international football.
Odemwingie has just played for Nigeria in the World Cup in Brazil, scoring a vital goal to help them progress through the group stages of the tournament, but could be set to hang up his international boots.
"Sometimes you just feel like you've come a circle and I don't know whether I'll play on for Nigeria," Odemwingie told BBC Sport.
His international retirement would come as good news to Mark Hughes as he is set to miss three weeks of the season along with Mame Biram Diouf due to the African Cup of Nations in January.
The 32-year-old forward has only just recently been reintroduced to the Nigerian fold after making up with coach Stephen Keshi.
Odemwingie had found himself out of the national reckoning after having a public spay with Keshi in 2013.
The former Cardiff and West Brom forward also told BBC Sport;
'There are many young players coming through now and you can only pass on your experience.
'It's not a decision I will rush into but then, you need to make an honest one.
'But we shall see in the next couple of weeks.'
Odemwingie has played 67 times for his country, scoring 11 goals, which has helped him and his team mates, win Olympic silver along with a trio of third places in the African Cup of Nations.
