“I don’t think yet about my future. I can’t settle on a hurried choice so I’ll utilize the following couple of weeks to choose.
“I have been getting immediate calls from various specialists and clubs, yet now making the most of my Christmas break with the family and it is the activity of my operator to address them.”
Since his turn from Watford in January 2017 Ighalo has scored 36 objectives in 55 appearances.
“It is fairly unexpected that my best season in China finished in a transfer, I have never been consigned in my profession so it harms as the skipper of a fabulous club with stunning individuals and amazing fans,” he included.
“In life you can just make the move upward and forward.”
Ighalo, who has played in Norway, Italy, Spain and English side Watford, is an objective for some groups in China, Turkey and Saudi Arabia.
