Ighalo wants more money from Watford

08 July 2015, 17:50

Lagos - Odion Ighalo has revealed he is in discussion with Watford over a new and improved deal ahead of the club's return to the Premier League.

Nigerian-born Ighalo played a key role in helping the Hornets return to the top-flight after bagging 20 goals in the Championship last term.

And, the Super Eagles forward is even thought to have rejected a move to China in favour of staying in England, and now hopes Watford can return the faith.

"We are in talks with Watford for an improved deal, I hope for the best in this," Ighalo told African Football.

"I am not bothering myself about that because I have my agent doing the talking, while I am doing the job on the field. We train twice daily in preparation for the new EPL season.

“Everything is on my agent for a new deal."

Ighalo's demands for an increase comes days after Watford reportedly paid a club-record fee for Capoue from Tottenham Hotspur.
