Man United include Ighalo, two others in Europa League squad

Manchester United have added Odion Ighalo and two other January signings to their Europa League squad for the knockout stages of the competition – including Bruno Fernandes.

Fernandes signed from Sporting in January, and is eligible to represent United despite having played in all of his former club’s group stage matches in the Europa League.

Man United had to submit their desired squad changes by 24:00 CET on Monday 3 February, where they could add up to three new players. The resulting squad has seen loan signing Ighalo joined by Fernandes and youth addition Nathan Bishop, who joined from Southend.
