United made the decision to extend the Nigerian's loan until the end of January 2021 but are still desperate to add a new forward player to help them cope with the packed fixture schedule which lies ahead.

MEN Sport reported earlier in the week United are holding various discussions in an attempt to secure more signings before the transfer deadline.

The club are continuing talks with FC Porto over a possible deal for Brazilian left-back Alex Telles but are running out of time to secure a deal for priority target Jadon Sancho.
