Manchester United have reached an agreement with Shanghai Greenland Shenhua to extend the loan deal for Odion Ighalo, AOIFootball.com reports.

United announced via their official website that their Nigerian striker whose stay was initially due to end on 31 May 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.

Monday’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.

The Premier League’s proposed return date is 17 June and the Emirates FA Cup quarter-finals have been lined up for the weekend of 27 and 28 June.
