Ighalo Won’t Rule Out Villa Move

Ighalo Won’t Rule Out Villa Move

By Johnny Edward:

Super Eagles striker Odion Ighalo is aware of the reports linking him to Aston Villa but will rather wait until a formal bid is tabled for him before reacting, although he has not ruled out a move.

Aston Villa’s Belgian forward Christian Benteke is close to a move to Liverpool after both clubs agreed to a £32.5million move; and it seems manager Tim Sherwood is wasting no time seeking replacements with the Nigerian striker and Fiorentina front-man Khouma Babacar topping his wish list.

But in a chat with completesportsnigeria.com, the 26-year-old refused to confirm if he was open to a move this summer.

“Yes I’m aware of the reports linking me but there’s no formal bid,” he told completesportsnigeria.com exclusively.

“Only God knows if I’d move.”

The former Udinese star also told Watford observer that the Hornets pre-season training camp in Germany has allowed Watford’s newest recruits to integrate with the squad.

Ighalo has bagged his six goals for the Hornets in pre-season so far. Watford will face Dundee United and Cardiff City before taking on Europa League winners Sevilla.
