A Nigerian striker, Odion Ighalo has completed a permanent move to Saudi Arabian Pro League club Al-Shabab.
Ighalo left Chinese outfit Shanghai Shenhua after agreeing a two-and-half-years deal with the six-time Saudi champions.
Al-Shabab are currently top of the Saudi Professional League, still in the middle of the season. They are looking forward to win their first league title since 2011/12, with Ighalo as their strong weapon.
He will link up with Argentina international Ever Banega, who joined from Sevilla at the end of last season, as well as former Real Betis and Wolves midfielder Alfred N’Diaye.
The former Watford and Granada striker scored five goals in 23 appearances after arriving at Old Trafford on deadline day in January 2020, but made just four appearances for the Red Devils this season.
While enjoying praises from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer during his first loan spell, his quest for more opportunities was cut short following the arrival of Edinson Cavani in October.
He scored seven goals to finish top scorer in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying series and his five goals and one assist helped him claim the Golden Boot and fired Nigeria to a third-place at the end of the tournament in Egypt.
