Italian Serie A side AS Roma has contacted four players of Football Academy Abuja which the club has agreed to sign to intimate them of the day they will resume at the club.

Rabiu Rilwan Onyidamola, Ani Emmanuel,Haruna Adamu Mohammed and Chukwuemeka Emmanuel have been contacted by the Serie A club to resume training at the start of next month.

The quartet will join up with the U18s of the team, from where their progress will be monitored for promotion to the Primavera side in view of a step up to the first team.

” Roma contacted us last week and this week, we will know when the boys will be leaving for Italy, for sure it will be at the start of next month”, a club source told Owngoalnigeria.com.

Roma agreed a partnership with the Abuja based Academy following the success of Sadiq Umar and Nura Abdullahi who all started from the Nigeria Academy.

” Unlike Sadiq and Nura who went straight to the Primavera before heading to the first team, the four of them will start from a cadre lower, as they are just 16 and 17 year old”.
