Ighalo finds new club

Share

Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo has agreed a permanent deal to join Saudi Arabian club Al-Shabab.

Sky Sports have reported that the move is subject to the player passing a medical and agreeing personal terms.

Ighalo’s loan spell at Manchester United from Shanghai Shenhua came to an end earlier this week.

He was due to return to his parent club but they have given him permission to speak to the Saudi Arabian side.

The transfer window in Saudi Arabia runs until February 7.

The 31-year-old scored five goals in 23 appearances across all competitions for United after arriving on Deadline Day last January, but has made only two starts this season since Edinson Cavani joined in October.

Ighalo confirmed his departure from Old Trafford in an emotional farewell message last Tuesday.
