Odion Ighalo set to join Saudi Arabian club Al-Shabab

Saudi Arabian club Al-Shabab have agreed to sign former Manchester United loanee Odion Ighalo from Shanghai Shenhua.

The Nigerian striker has been linked with moves to Dubai, the Premier League and the MLS but a switch to the Middle East is now close to being completed after the two sides agreed to a deal.

The move is subject to him passing a medical after Ighalo was given permission to talk with the Saudi Arabian club. 

It comes just days after his loan spell at Old Trafford came to an end, where he penned an heartfelt farewell to the fans.
