AS Roma teen prospect Nura Abdullahi who had a heart scare in mid-November is set and ready to return to training.

An inflammation was discovered in his heart during a routine medical checkup and the 18 year old had minor surgery to correct the defects.

He is now set to return to full training after completing his rehabilitation but it’s still unclear which of the Roma team he will be training with.

Nura was a regular for the primavera team of Roma during the UEFA youth league impressing against Barcelona who were reportedly weighing up a move for him before the heart scare.

However in his health enforced absence his teammate at Spezia with whom they moved to Roma Sadiq Umar is already a permanent name in the first team and they are indications Nura might also be moved up to the first team as well.

Already he has made the match squad in the Serie A on three different occasion but yet to make his competitive debut.
