Ighalo is a cult figure at Watford having spent four years at the club following his move from LaLiga club Granada in 2014.
“Ighalo used to be my roommate. I spoke to Odion last week. He only had good things to say about the club. He’s a great guy, a fantastic player and like a big brother for me,” Troost-Ekong told the club website.
Troost-Ekong is expected to play a crucial role in the team’s return to the Premier League.
