Odion Ighalo

Nigerian forward Odion Ighalo is set to leave Premier League side Manchester United as his loan deal runs out on January 31.

Ighalo joined the Old Trafford outfit from Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua in January last year before his loan deal was extended as he convinced Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

However, after scoring five goals in 23 appearances with the Red Devils, the time has come for the 31-year-old to leave the Premier League side.

“It’s so hard to see this dream come to an end. But I give God the glory for helping me fulfill this lifelong dream of putting on a Manchester United shirt as a player and represent this great club, it was indeed an honor I will forever cherish and be grateful for,” Ighalo wrote on social media.

“To the manager I say thank you for trusting and believing in me when many did not, to my amazing team-mates I will miss you guys, it was always fun and a time I look forward to training and spending time with all of you. And I pray we win the LEAGUE and FA Cup this year.

“To the best fans in the world (the Manchester United fans) we have missed you, but we hear your voices cheering us on from afar, we can’t wait to have you all back on the stands.

“I’m still and would remain a MANCHESTER UNITED FAN forever. Once a Red, always a Red. Thank you Manchester United and God bless.”
