Odion Ighalo is giving no hints about where he’ll be playing or if he will until the Chinese Super League resumes with reports in England linking him with a loan spell at Watford.

Ighalo who on Friday picked up the FA Cup winner’s medal with Shanghai Shenhua, tweeted a picture with a teasing question.

 

Hours after the win at the Hongkou Football Stadium, the 30 year-old was airborne and he tweeted:

Done with football for the yearπŸ™πŸΎ Destination πŸ€”πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™‚οΈ

 

 

Ighalo left Watford in January of 2017 for a reported Β£20 million move to Changchun Yatai, who were relegated two seasons ago.

 

The 2019/20 CSL season ended December 1 and resumption for the new season is yet to be decided, which leaves the Nigerian striker at least until March without active football action.

 

He could decide to return to England on a short loan deal and the striker’s preferred destination could be Watford, who are currently bottom of the table in the Premier League.
