Footballer Odion Ighalo has become the first Nigerian to officially play for the Manchester United senior men’s team after the club made a late swoop for him on Friday.

Ighalo, who plays for Shanghai Shenhua in the Chinese Super League, agreed a move to Old Trafford until the end of the season.

United boss, 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.”
