Ighalo delighted to extend his stay, ready to take Manchester United 'higher'

Manchester United striker Odion Ighalo has vowed to do whatever he can to take his club to a 'higher' level after extending his loan deal. 

Ighalo joined United during the January transfer window from Shangai Shenhua where he signed a six-month loan deal. The Nigerian's stay at Old Trafford was set to come to an end this summer. However, on Monday, Ighalo signed a contract extension that will see him stay with the Red Devils until January 2021. 

"I'm really happy. It's a dream for me to be here. I'm buzzing and ready to go. Since the first day I arrived, I made it clear that I wanted whatever it takes to continue that work," he said. 

"Like I've said, since I was young, I've been supporting this club and playing for it is a dream. Now I've extended my loan, it makes it more even clear and I'm committed as I know, in my head, I'm here until January ending."

Next level

"I just want to work hard and enjoy it, support the team, and do whatever I can to make us go higher and higher."

The 30-year-old will be keen to add his tally of four goals in the United shirt once the Premier League resumes.
