Super Eagles star Odion Ighalo has joined Shanghai Shenhua FC in China after Changchun Yatai FC got relegated from the Chinese Super League.
Ighalo scored 22 goals for the side in the last campaign but that did not stop them from returning to the lower Chinese football cadre.
“Shanghai Greenland Shenhua Football Club and Changchun Yatai Football Club reached a transfer agreement, Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo officially joined Shanghai Greenland Shenhua,” the club said in a statement.
“The joining of Yi Haro will effectively enhance Shenhua’s frontcourt attack and enrich the offensive means.
“With two seasons of experience in the Super League and working with current coach Flores, Ihalo [sic]will be able to integrate into the team as quickly as possible. Looking forward to his new season, he will help Shenqi to win more victories.”
