Ighalo Joins Changchun Yatai – SuperSport


Nigerian striker, Odion Ighalo has completed a moved to Chinese Super League club, Changchun Yatai.

Ighalo joins from English Premier League club, Watford for £20m.

The Super Eagles striker teamed up with the Hornets in 2014 from Italian side Udinese and helped Watford win promotion to the Premier League in the 2014-15 campaign.

He scored 15 top-flight goals in 2015-16, but has only one Premier League goal this season and has gone 15 games without scoring in all competitions.

Ighalo was a big hit with the Watford fans as he played 100 times in all competitions for the club and scored 39 goals.

In the calendar year of 2015, he scored 30 goals in 38 games but has since his form drop, netting six times since then.

The Watford manager, Walter Mazzarri seemed to have made his plans without Ighalo when he signed two attacking players – AC Milan striker M’Baye Niang, 22, on loan until the end of the season and Argentine forward Mauro Zarate, 29, on a permanent deal from Fiorentina.

Watford seem to be coping well without Ighalo as they recorded a shock 2-1 away to Arsenal in the Premier League on Tuesday – the club’s first game since the Nigerian sealed a move away from the club.
