West Brom will again be without striker Peter Odemwingie for Sunday's game with Tottenham after his hopes of a proposed move to QPR failed to materialise.

The Nigerian international was not considered for Wednesday's game at Everton after his new-born son was readmitted to hospital, but misses out now due to the fall-out from his attempt to move to Loftus Road.

Youssouf Mulumbu is available after returning to The Hawthorns from African Nations Cup duty following DR Congo's exit, but fellow midfielder George Thorne is ruled out with a knee injury.

Provisional squad: Foster, Myhill, Daniels, Reid, Jones, Olsson, McAuley, Tamas, Popov, Ridgewell, Dorrans, Mulumbu, Yacob, Brunt, Morrison, Thomas, Long, Lukaku, Fortune, Rosenberg, El Ghanassy, Nabi.

Striker Jermain Defoe has been passed fit for Tottenham's game at West Brom on Sunday after overcoming his niggling pelvic injury.

Midfielder Tom Huddlestone (leg) is also fit, but striker Emmanuel Adebayor (African Nations Cup), defender Younes Kaboul (knee) and midfielder Sandro (knee) are all out.

Striker Harry Kane goes back in to the squad following his recall from a loan spell at Norwich while midfielder Lewis Holtby could make his full debut following his transfer from Schalke.

Provisional squad: Lloris, Friedel, Walker, Naughton, Dawson, Gallas, Vertonghen, Caulker, Assou-Ekotto, Lennon, Sigurdsson, Livermore, Dempsey, Parker, Dembele, Huddlestone, Holtby, Bentley, Bale, Defoe, Kane.
