Watford Striker Ighalo Waiting For Rohr’s Permission Before Deciding On Move To China


Watford striker Odion Ighalo is reportedly waiting to get the green light from the coach of the Nigeria senior national team Gernot Rohr before deciding on a move to Shanghai Shenhua.


We gathered his agent Atta Aneke has gotten him a double your pay deal in China with Shanghai Shenhua, same club where Obafemi Martins plays, who are on the look out for a striker to make up for the absence of Demba Ba due to a long term injury.

However the move could end his international career due to the options available to manager Gernot Rohr, hence he is seeking assurances from the coach, who incidentally named him among the Nigerian players he will love to see switch teams in January.

Before the start of last season, the 27 year old turned down a big money move to China but since then a lot has changed in his form at club and international level.

While he was among the feared strikers in the English Premier League last season, this season he has just one goal to his name, which has cost him his starting spot at Watford.
