Nigeria’s Umar Sadiq completes Bologna switch from Roma

Umar Sadiq


Nigeria U-23 striker Umar Sadiq has finalized a move to Serie A side FC Bologna on loan, it was officially announced on Wednesday night.

Sadiq joined Roma in 2015 on a season-long loan from Serie B club Spezia, before joining the Giallorossi permanently in June 2016 for €2.5 millions.

Roma confirmed that the 19-year-old striker moved to Bologna on an initial loan until 30 June 2017 with a buyout option in the favour of the Rossoblu included in the player’s contract.

Should Bologna exercise the buyout option,  Roma will retain a buy-back clause on the player, as per the club’s official statement.

Sadiq was a member of the Nigeria U-23 team that have achieved the Bronze medal recently in the Rio 2016 Olympics.
