Ighalo Completes Move to Changchun Yatai

Nigeria International and Watford striker Odion Ighalo has agreed a permanent switch to Chinese Super League club Changchun Yatai, the Premier League side have confirmed.
The 27-year-old Nigeria international has moved for a fee reported to be in the region of £20million.

‘The Hornets can confirm that Odion Ighalo has agreed a permanent move to Changchun Yatai,” Watford announced on their website Tuesday night.

“The 27-year-old striker joins the Chinese Super League outfit after two-and-a-half years at Vicarage Road.

“Ighalo scored 39 goals in 100 appearances during that time, including 20 as Watford secured promotion to the Premier League in 2014/15, and 17 during the club’s first campaign back in the top-flight.

“The Nigerian international initially arrived on loan from Granada in July 2014, a move which was made permanent three months later.

“All at Watford FC thank Odion for his contributions to the club, and wish him the best of luck for his future career.”
