Odion Ighalo set for Premier League return after talking to his club about Newcastle’s interest

Newcastle are interested in signing former Manchester United star Odio Ighalo in the January transfer window, according to reports.

The striker, 32, currently plays for Saudi Arabian side Al Shabab and he is the top scorer in the league this season with nine goals.

He moved to the Middle East after his loan spell at United came to an end – he scored five goals in 23 games for the Red Devils.

And he would be open to a move to St. James’ Park, report Sky Sports.

Al Shabab have reportedly spoken to Ighalo about a potential move with Eddie Howe’s 19th-placed side in desperate need of new signings.

Another report claims that the 32-year-old has informed his club that he would be open to a move to St. James’ Park if an official offer is extended.
