Manager of AS Roma has turned down loan approach for their 18 year old Nigerian full back Nura Abdullahi insisting he will remain at the Serie A side.

Nura joined Roma on loan from Spezia where he excelled against Roma Primavera side in a game last season and was close to breaking into the first team before a heart defect stopped him.

However with final checks set to be made on him in the first week of February it is expected he will be given the all clear to return to the pitch,a situation that has alerted teams who want him on loan.

The Bad news for the teams is that AS Roma manager Luciano Spalleti has ruled that out insisting the Barcelona target will get games at Roma as he is highly rated.

“He (Nura) will stay with the A team despite the fact that he is eligible for the Primavera team because all we see isn’t age but pure talent especially our technicla director Walter Sabatini who describes him as a phenomenon” He said.
