Odion Ighalo has told Manchester United that he wants to stay at the club beyond the end of his loan deal.

The 31-year-old has made just four appearances for United this season and fell even further down the pecking order in the summer following the arrival of Edinson Cavani.

But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been keen to stress that Ighalo is still impressing during United’s training sessions and insists the striker has been a ‘positive influence in the dressing room’.

Ighalo, who is currently on loan from Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua, is due to leave Old Trafford at the end of the month when his temporary deal expires.

But the Nigerian striker is looking to remain at United for the rest of the campaign.

‘Today, I’m in Manchester but at the end of the month I don’t know where I’m going to be,’ Ighalo told ESPN.

‘If it’s possible I’d like to stay here but if not I have to go.

‘I have options. I wait for my agent. He is doing his job and I’m doing mine.

‘At the end of the month, we have to decide what is best and we’ll take it. If it’s possible I’d like to play in MLS but I have to wait to see if it’s possible.

‘The league is doing well and if the opportunity arises then I’d grab it with two hands.’

Ighalo is also adamant that he is not unhappy with his lack of playing time at United this season.

‘I’m a professional, I don’t make trouble and I don’t complain,’ said the striker.

‘I just go to training and give my best.

‘Lately I haven’t been playing much but it’s the coach’s decision. If I’m not in the team and give them 100 per cent support.

‘The team is doing well and that’s the most important thing.’
