SUPER Eagles players Sadiq Umar and Nura Abdullahi have both been offered three year contracts by Italian Serie A clubside Roma after both of them put in brilliant performances over the course of the season.
Targetman Umar, 19, has had a brilliant season having broken into the team as a striker and has led the line well in matches he has featured well, holding the ball up well. Defender Abdullahi has also equipped himself well in the right fullback position where he currently plays for the youth team.
A Roma spokesman said: “Sadiq and Nura have both agreed a three-year contract with Roma. They will be signed in June.”
Both players have been on loan from Italian Serie B outfit Spezia. Umar, has made six appearances for the Rome club this season in the league and scored two goals but his first-team chances have dried up though since the return of coach Luciano Spalletti in January.
However, the Kaduna-born Umar has also been scoring goals for fun for the Roma youth team amid rumours he is wanted by some of Europe’s top guns. Abdullahi, 18, on the other hand, has yet to make his Serie A debut but he is highly rated by Roma.
