Manchester United have officially confirmed that Odion Ighalo's loan deal has been extended until January 31, 2021 after they reached an agreement with his parent club, Shanghai Shenhua.

 

In a statement, the club said: 'Manchester United have reached agreement with Shanghai Greenland Shenhua to extend the loan deal for Odion Ighalo.

 

The Nigerian striker's stay was initially due to end on 31 May but he will now remain with the Reds until 31 January 2021, enabling him to build on an impressive start to life with the club he supported as a boy.

 

Ighalo's tally of four goals in eight appearances so far includes at least one strike in each of his three starts - against Club Brugge, Derby County (2) and LASK.

 

Today's confirmation is a timely boost for United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, as he continues to prepare his squad for this month's resumption of competitive football.'

 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also thanked Shanghai Shenhua for allowing the 30-year-old to remain in Manchester longer than previously agreed.

 

"They [Shanghai Greenland Shenhua] have been great towards us, allowing him to play for his dream club," Solskjaer said.

 

"It's been a dream for him and hopefully he can finish what he started and win a trophy with us."

 

Odion Ighalo, who signed for Manchester United on a short-term loan deal from Shanghai Shenhua back in January transfer window, has scored four times in eight appearances in all competitions before the suspension of the Premier League.
