Man Utd make £10.5m commitment to extend Odion Ighalo loan – but won't sign him in January

The Red Devils have agreed to pay £130,000 of his £300,000-per-week salary, as well as a £6m loan fee.

Ighalo had been set to return to China after his initial loan spell expired, but the delay in restarting the Chinese Super League allowed for more time in negotiations.

Speaking after the deal was confirmed, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer declared he was happy to see the veteran forward extend his stay at the club.

He said: “They [Shanghai Shenhua] have been great towards us, allowing him to play for his dream club.
