Shaw: Man Utd players delighted Ighalo staying

Manchester United fullback Luke Shaw says the players are delighted Odion Ighalo is staying.

Ighalo has just had his loan from Shanghai Shenhua extended to the end of the year.

"All the players are really happy for him," Shaw said. "Obviously his situation was up in the air and we try not to talk about that kind of thing at training but we're just so happy for him.

"Before he arrived, a few people outside the club weren't too sure what he was going to bring to the club, but he's shown everyone because he's brought goals and a different style to our other strikers.

"He's earned and deserved the chance to stay here longer. He brings happiness and a smile to the place.

"He's great in training but he's also been really important at times during games and scored some great goals.

"Now that everything's sorted, hopefully he can relax now and settle back into doing what he was doing before football stopped."
