Former Watford striker Odion Ighalo has told Sky Sports News he wants to return to the Premier League this month.

Chinese club Changchun Yatai want to recoup the £20m they spent to sign him from Watford in January 2017, if they are to sell.

Shortly after joining Changchun Yatai, Ighalo claimed his preference was to remain in England.

He said at the time Crystal Palace and West Brom were interested but the figure Watford were asking for was too high.

Ighalo has scored 36 goals in 55 games for Chanchung Yatai.
