Odion Ighalo vows to take Man Utd ‘higher and higher’


Odion Ighalo has vowed to take Manchester United “higher and higher” after signing up for another six months.

The Nigerian’s loan from Shanghai Shenhu has been extended until January 2021 after his original agreement was set to end last weekend.

Ighalo scored four goals in eight games after joining the Red Devils at the start of the year.

But he was set to return to China before the resumption of the Premier League later this month.

However, United have agreed to pay £10million to keep Ighalo at the club for a while longer.

And the forward says he’s ready to help Ole Gunnar Solskjaer bring the good times back to Old Trafford.

He said: “I’m really happy. It’s a dream for me to be here. I’m buzzing and ready to go.

“Since the first day I arrived, I made it clear that I wanted whatever it takes to continue that work.

“Like I’ve said, since I was young, I’ve been supporting this club and playing for it is a dream.

“Now I’ve extended my loan, it makes it even more clear and I’m committed as I know, in my head, I’m here until January.

“I just want to work hard and enjoy it, support the team and do whatever I can to make us go higher and higher.”
