Reports in England suggest that Manchester United are on the verge of agreeing a contract extension for Nigerian forward Odion Ighalo.


The Old trafford outfit are keen on extending the former Watford’s man six month loan spell and have until Midnight  Sunday to reach an agreement with his parent Club Shanghai Shenhua.


Ighalo joined the reds in the January transfer window amidst grave criticisms from sections of the club but has managed to silence naysayers with a modest return of four goals in eight appearances for the red army.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer is optimistic that a deal will allow the 2019 AFCON goal king “finish off what he started”.
