Changchun Yatai of China striker, Odion Jude Ighalo may not be on his w3ay to Europe after all in the January transfer window, as the Super Eagles star is said to be considering another offer in the Asian nation.
Footballlive.ng gathered from startling information out of China at the weekend that Ighalo might be ready to jettison all overtures coming his way in central Europe and opt to stay put in the Oriental Nation instead.
In contrast with intial reports that Ighalo would stay put with relegated Yatai, the striker had been touted with offers in Italy, Norway, France and England, but he may surprisingly accept another deal in the Chinese Super League, rather than head back to Europe.
Ighalo has previous experience playing at Lyn Oslo of Norway, Udinese of Italy, Granada of Spain and Watford of England, which makes his prospects of another deal in Europe very high,. but a source close to the striker insists he will remain in China.
Remaining in China, though, no longer means sticking out with Changchun Yatai, but with another club in the top-flight Chinese Super League, according to the often credible source.
“The way it is,” said the source, “I am sure Odion will not leave China. He is not going back to Europe, though, but wants another club in the Chinese Super League.”
