Odion Ighalo says he will be happy to remain at Watford despite the myriads of offers that have come his way recently, but will hold talks with the Watford owner to determine his future.
The striker is contracted to the Hornets until the summer of 2020, but has been the subject of transfer speculations ahead of the summer transfer window, with reports suggesting West Brom and an unnamed Qatari club have made concrete offers for him.
But Ighalo says he is happy to stay at Vicarage Road if he is not sold.
“A lot of clubs were interested in January and I turned down a lot of money from China and even in the Premier League,” Ighalo told Sky Sports.
“I decided to stay and I am still happy I stayed. I know offers will come.”
It remains unclear what the future holds for him considering the number of offers he’s getting, and the 26-year old admits his agent will have a sit-down with the Watford owner to discuss his future.
“My agent is going to sit down with Gino (Pozzo) and talk. I have a four-year contract and I am happy if they want me to stay.
“We will see how it goes. I love the fans here, they supported me even when things were not going well, that’s all you can want. If Gino wants to keep me I am happy to stay.”
Ighalo has scored 15 Premier League goals this term, but has somewhat fizzled out during the latter stages of the season.
