Ighalo Keen On Watford Stay If Club Owner, Gino So Desires

By Adeboye Amosu:

Watford's  top scorer, Odion Ighalo has insisted he is happy at the club and keen to stay at Vicarage Road this summer despite the surprise departure of manager, Quique Sanchez Flores.

It was confirmed on Friday that Flores would  leave the Hornets at the end of the season despite securing their safety in the top flight after promotion a year ago and reaching the last four of the FA Cup.

Ighalo who is under contract at the club until 2020 turned down lucrative offers from China in January and said he was ready to resist interest again this summer.

"A lot of clubs were interested  in January and I turned down a lot of money from China and even in the Premier League," Ighalo told Sky Sports News.

"I decided to stay and I am still happy I stayed. I know offers will come. My agent is going to sit down with Gino (Pozzo, owner of Watford) and talk.

"I have a four-  year contract and I am happy if they want me to stay.
"We will see how it goes. I love the fans here, they supported me even when things were not going well, that' s all you want. If Gino wants to keep me I am happy to stay."
