Premier League side Newcastle United are reportedly considering a surprise move when the transfer window re-opens.
The North East club are considering making an offer for Odion Ighalo once their £300 million proposed takeover by a Saudi-consortium goes through.
According to the Daily Express, Newcastle want the striker, currently on loan to Manchester United, ahead of the Reds making a permanent offer for the player.
With Shanghai Shenhua potentially looking to cash in for the 30 year old? This could be a move that suits both parties.
Manchester United might however still be considering bringing Ighalo in on a full term deal.
