Former Manchester United striker Odion Ighalo has joined Saudi Arabia Pro League side Al Shabab on a permanent deal from Chinese Super League outfit Shanghai Shenhua.
The former Super Eagles star was given a two-and-a-half-year deal with the King Fahd Stadium having passed his medicals.
Ighalo initially joined Premier League side Manchester United on a temporary deal at the end of the January transfer window as the Red Devils explore for cover in attack for the rest of the 2019-20 season, with Marcus Rashford suffering a long-term injury.
His signing raised eyebrows, but the former Watford man scored four goals in eight matches in all competitions – starting just three of those games – and saw his loan extended.

However, he found the chance of playing hard to come by this season with only just four appearances in all competitions.
Despite getting plenty suitors, the 31-year-old chose to continue his career with the White Lion where he joins Senegal international Alfred N’Diaye.
