Ighalo signed a two-and-a-half-year contract with the Saudi club on Thursday.

“Al Shabab has been signed with Odion Ighalo  @ighalojude (Ex. Man United striker) for two and a half years.” Al Shabab wrote on their English Twitter page

Ighalo who has been assigned the number 89 jersey could make his debut for his new club in Saturday’s league encounter.

While at Manchester United, Ighalo scored five goals across 23 appearances in all competitions for the Red Devils..

With more playing time and lesser competition in the Saudi League compared to what obtains in England, Ighalo is expected to bang in more goals in the Middle-East.
