The Nigerian striker only completed a £20 million move from Watford to Changchun Yatai last week.

“I am looking forward to the challenge of playing in China,” Ighalo told ESPN FC.

“I know life goes on and I must do what is best for me. My agent, Ladi [Salami], worked hard of sorting my future out and I happy with the deal.

“Of course, if it is possible to come back to the Premier League one day, I would love to do that. It is a great league with so many great teams and the fans are brilliant, so you never know what might happen in the future.”

Ighalo signed for Watford permanently in 2014, after an initial loan spell and scored 39 goals in 100 appearances.

“I have a lot of happy memories from time at Watford, helping them win promotion to the Premier League, scoring goals in the Premier League breaking a lot of records, so they are great memories for me,” he said.

“The fans were great to me and I would like to thank them for their support, and I will miss Watford.”
