Ighalo: I have unfinished business in England

Watford striker Odion Ighalo has admitted he will one day make a move to Chinese football, but insists he is happy in England for the time being.

The Nigeria international was the subject of interest from the Chinese Super League in the off-season transfer window, and was expected to depart Vicarage Road after the club received a £38m bid from big-spending Shanghai SIPG.

However, the 27-year-old didn't feel the time was right to move on, as he feels he still has "unfinished business in England". This after netting 15 goals in the 37 appearances for the Hornets last season.

"I'm not moved by the money from China. When the time comes, I will go to China," the former Udinese frontman told AfricanFootball.

"This is not the time to go to go to China. The money is big, the money is crazy, I know.

"And I am not Cristiano Ronaldo, I'm not Messi. I'm not rich, but I'm contented with what I have, I thank God for what I have.

"Week in, week out, my mum and my siblings watch me in action in the best league in the world.

"This is the best league in the world and I hope to keep giving my best every week there.

"And so, I still have unfinished business in England."

Ighalo committed his future to Watford at the start of August, penning a new five-year contract with the Premier League outfit.
