As tweeted by the official Man United Page on twitter:
✍ #MUFC can confirm that Odion Ighalo will join us on loan from Shanghai Shenhua until the end of the season.

Welcome, Odion! 🔴

— Manchester United (@ManUtd) February 1, 2020

Ighalo has 16 goals in 55 Premier League appearances for Watford before leaving for China and will provide short-term cover for the injured England international Marcus Rashford.


Speaking about the loan deal, United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: "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.


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

Ighalo first moved to Chinese Super League side Changchun Yatai, before he joined Shanghai Shenhua in February 2019.
