Odion Ighalo Wants English Premier League Return
Former Watford striker Odion Ighalo has revealed he wants to leave Chanchung Yatai and return to the English Premier League this month.
However, Chinese club Changchun Yatai, are willing to sell him unless they recoup the £20m they spent to sign him from Watford in January 2017.
Ighalo has scored 36 goals in 55 games for Chanchung Yatai.
Shortly after he signed with the Chinese club, Ighalo stated that his preference was with EPL.
Speaking to Skysports, he said at the time Crystal Palace and West Brom were interested, but the demands from Watford were too high.
The Nigerian is expected in the UK this week to discuss his future.
The Nigerian joined Watford in 2014 and scored 16 goals in 55 appearances in the Premier League for the Hornets, forming a successful partnership with Troy Deeney.
