Odion Ighalo Sealed Manchester United Loan move

Manchester United have announced the signing of Odion Ighalo from Shanghai Shenhua on loan until the end of the season.

The deal for the Nigerian striker who previously plied his trade with Watford between 2014 and 2017, does not include an option to buy.

Ighalo scored 16 goals in 55 Premier League appearances for Watford before moving to China and will provide short-term cover for the injured Marcus Rashford.

Speaking about Ighalo's move, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer stated: "Odion is an experienced player. He will come in and give us an option of a different type of centre-forward for the short spell he's staying with us.

"He is a great lad and very professional, he will make the most of his time here."

Inter Milan are in pursuit of the Nigerian when their pursuit of Chelsea forward Olivier Giroud failed, but Ighalo has his heart set on a move to the club he supported as a kid.

He was the top scorer in African Cup of Nations qualifying for Nigeria with seven goals, before scoring five at the tournament last summer to win the golden shoe.
