He spoke to the sun : "When the options came, my aim was to stay in England. West Brom made an offer but what Watford wanted made it impossible to go there.

“Crystal Palace, were also interested, but Watford’s demands put them off as well.

“It was only Changchun Yatai that could give them what they wanted. I understand football is business, they sell and buy to make profit.

“Personally, it is good money for me but if I had my way I would love to stay in the EPL.

“My family here, the kids are in school here, they have their friends here also, getting that  stability is never easy when you keep moving your family. But what can we do? Life goes on.”

The Ex Watford striker was the top scorer across all Four English Divisions in 2015 with 30 goals.
