European Club, Roma Signs These Nigerian Players, Sadiq Umar And Abdullahi Nura For €5 Million
According to Goal.com, two Nigerian defender and attacker have each signed four year contracts with the Stadio Olimpico outfit after spending last season on loan with Luciano Spalletti’s men
Roma have signed Sadiq Umar and Abdullahi Nura from Serie B side Spezia for a combined fee of €5 million (1,605,318,750). Both players have signed four-year contracts at Stadio Olimpico after impressing while on loan at the club in 2015-16.
The permanent acquisition of 19-year-old Sadiq will boost Luciano Spalletti’s attacking options – the tall striker scored two goals in six Serie A appearances for Roma last season and was reportedly being tracked by a number of other top European clubs.
Nura’s preferred position is right-back, and the 18-year-old made 11 appearances in Roma’s Primavera youth side in 2015-16, scoring three goals as they won the title.
