Saudi Arabian Pro League club Al Wehda are on the brink of announcing the capture of Super Eagles striker Odion Ighalo.


According to Sky Sports, the former Watford and Manchester United star has agreed a two-year deal with Al Wehda, and he is set to have a medical with The Red Giant in the coming days.
