Odion Ighalo scored his 14th goal of the season Saturday against Newcastle to end Watford five-game winless streak and afterwards restated he is unconcerned about the various transfer speculations surrounding him.

The Nigerian Ighalo maintained he is not bothering himself about the transfer speculations linking him to moves away from Watford.

“The news linking me to join Chelsea and Atletico Madrid are all rumours and speculations because no bid that I know of has been tabled by either club,” he said.

“I am not bothering myself about this, but just concentrating on my game to keep doing well for the club to achieve our aim.”

On Saturday, Ighalo scored the opening goal of the game against Newcastle at home in the very first minute of the second half.

Watford’s last victory in an EPL game was a 3-0 spanking of Liverpool on December 20, 2015.

This is the second recent victory of Watford over Newcastle United after Watford won 1-0 in an FA Cup clash.
