John Mikel Obi, Odion Ighalo leading an exodus of Nigerians to China

Jason Dasey and PJ Roberts talk through the pick of the Chinese Super League deals on European deadline day.
Odion Ighalo
Odion Ighalo completed his move from Watford to Chinese club Changchun Yatai on the final day of the winter transfer window.

First it was captain John Mikel Obi. Then forward Odion Ighalo followed. Now reports have emerged that midfielder Ogenyi Onazi and striker Brown Ideye could also be on their way to China.

Once considered the graveyard of football careers, the Chinese Super League is still not much higher up that particular totem pole despite attracting some of the world's biggest talent, with obscene wages proving an irresistible allure.

If the last two moves go through, Asia's money-spraying league would have claimed...

Kelechi Iheanacho at a career crossroads at Manchester City

Only 20 years of age,  Kelechi Iheanacho needs to find a place where he can be assured of regular game time.

Kelechi Iheanacho has returned to the crossroads of his Manchester City career. Just before the beginning of the season, the Nigeria international turned down the chance to participate at the Olympic Games in order to focus on impressing new manager Pep Guardiola and secure his precarious place in the City first team.

That decision proved to be a good one, as it not only allowed him to meet the boss ahead of the new season, but also to receive the reassurances he needed.

A rosy beginning led...

Kelechi Iheanacho
After failing to qualify for the African Nations Cup, Nigeria has high hopes with young stars like Man City's Kelechi Iheanacho.

Cameroon's African Nations Cup win this past weekend did more than stun the continent. Marked down as no-hopers, even by themselves, after seven key players chose to put their club careers over their country, the Indomitable Lions showed gritty resolve, stern determination and supreme confidence in the whole being greater than the sum of its parts to reach and win the final against record seven-time champions Egypt.

"After we qualified, the first objective was to make it out of the group stage,"...

China move might be just what Ighalo needs to reignite his career

Jason Dasey and PJ Roberts talk through the pick of the Chinese Super League deals on European deadline day.

Odion Ighalo completed his move from Watford to Chinese club Changchun Yatai on deadline day after passing a medical and agreeing personal terms.

The move brings an end to a nightmarish last few months for the Nigerian striker, who has found goals hard to come by this term after seemingly firing them in for fun last season. A consequence of the lack of goals was that Ighalo lost his place in the starting lineup, and the player subsequently asked for a transfer.

"I told them I wanted to move,"...

Everton sensation Ademola Lookman must choose Nigeria over England

Ademola Lookman has enjoyed a meteoric rise to the top flight in English football.

Everton raised a few eyebrows when they splashed out around £11 million to sign Ademola Lookman from League One Charlton Athletic but the youngster has already made a big impression.

Lookman enjoyed a dream debut on Jan. 15, coming on as a substitute in Everton's win over Manchester City and netting the final goal in a rousing 4-0 victory for Ronald Koeman's men.

It's a whirlwind spell for the youngster, who has made the step up from the third tier of English football to find himself potentially...
