How Odion Ighalo's transfer to Manchester United happened on deadline day

Shanghai Shenhua striker Odion Ighalo almost failed to get his dream transfer to Manchester United on the Jan. 31 deadline day -- a few minutes later, and he could have been at a rival Premier League club instead -- but once things started to move, they did so at lightning pace. A frenetic night of talks spanning Norway, England and China saw it take just eight hours from the first phone call to the final contract signing for United to land the 30-year-old on loan.

Wellington Phoenix's move for Obafemi Martins falls through

A Wellington Phoenix bid to sign veteran Nigerian striker Obafemi Martins to a marquee A-League contract has failed.

Former Inter Milan and Newcastle United star Martins will make it a priority to recover from a long-term leg injury while still on the books of Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua.
