DONE DEAL: Watford confirm departure of Odion Ighalo

Odion Ighalo has left Watford for the Chinese Super League.

The 27-year-old Nigerian striker has agreed a permanent move to Changchun Yatai after completing a medical tonight.

Ighalo leaves Vicarage Road after two-and-a-half years for a fee of £20million.

He joined the Hornets from Granada in 2014 and scored 39 goals in 100 appearances in all competitions.

A Watford statement read: "The Hornets can confirm that Odion Ighalo has agreed a permanent move to Changchun Yatai.

"All at Watford FC thank Odion for his contributions to the club, and wish him the best of luck for his future career."
