12am Man Utd transfer news LIVE: Ighalo last-minute deal ANNOUNCED, Solskjaer speaks on new signing, Bishop SIGNS – The Sun

IT was a busy last day of the window at Old Trafford – despite Ole Gunnar Solskjaer claiming it wouldn't be.

Following the arrival of Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon yesterday, United were still looking to boost their striking options with Marcus Rashford on the injury table.

And they've struck late in the window, bagging Odion Ighalo on a six-month loan from Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua.

See below for a full recap of a busy day at Old Trafford…


    The loan signing until the end of the season of Shanghai Shenhua's Odion Ighalo has been CONFIRMED.

    Boss Solskjaer said of his new addition: “Odion is an experienced player. He will come in and give us an option of a different type of centre-forward for the short spell he’s staying with us.

    “A great lad and very professional, he will make the most of his time here.”


    Ighalo's arrival at Old Trafford may not be a January Deadline Day signing to get Manchester United fans' pulses racing.

    But if the 30-year-old former Watford marksman can help fire them into the top four, cult hero status could be achieved at the Theatre of Dreams.


    The initial six-month loan deal for Shanghai Shenhua's Odion Ighalo has been agreed.

    He will fly to the UK this weekend.

    And the deal also has an option for a permanent move.


    But deals can go through if the paperwork has been submitted…


    Man Utd fans when then finally sign a striker…
