Odion Ighalo is staying with Manchester United.
The Old Trafford club have agreed a loan extension with Shanghai Shenhua until January 2021.
Eyebrows were raised when the former Watford striker made his deadline day switch from the Chinese Super League side in January, but the 30-year-old quickly made an impression at Old Trafford.
Ighalo scored four goals in eight appearances for the club he’s supported since childhood, only for the coronavirus suspension to take the season well beyond the loan deals May 31 expiration.
The Nigeria international is now staying put after an extension agreement was reached, keeping him at United until January 31, 2021.
It’s understood, however, the deal does not include an option to buy.
