Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo has finally scored his first goal for his new Saudi Arabian side in their emphatic League win over Ahmed Musa's former club Al-Nassr.

After spending a year on loan at Manchester United, Odion Ighalo left the Premier League side in January this year due to lack of active playing time under Ole Solskjaer.

Having failed to score on his debut versus Al Raed, the 31-year-old made his presence count as the White Lions extended their winning streak to four.

Although Odion Ighalo came on in the 63rd minute in this encounter, the Nigerian scored his goal in the 90th minute which was a perfect one.

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Ahmed Musa's proposed transfer to Premier League giants West Brom has been cancelled by the club's chiefs after training with them for almost one week.

The Super Eagles captain was said to have travelled to the United Kingdom last week where he was accessed by West Brom's coaching crew who are looking for an agile striker.

Since leaving Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr last year October, Ahmed Musa has been looking for ways to return to the Premier League after his unsuccessful stint at Leicester City.

At Leicester City, Ahmed Musa managed to play 33 games for the Foxes which included six Champions League appearances before he left the side scoring five goals.
