Nigeria Rio 2016 forward Sadiq Umar won’t be returning back to Roma this January after Bologna refused their request to have him back.
Sadiq joined Bologna on a season long loan deal but the Rome outfit approached them to have him back during the January transfer window as back up to forward Edin Dzeko.
However Owngoalnigeria.com can exclusively reveal that their request was knocked back by Bologna’s coach Roberto Donadoni, who still has faith in the 19 year old.
Sadiq only recently returned from a two months injury lay off which required surgery, and after one week of working separately he trained with the rest of the squad today.
Since joining Bologna he has only made five appearances, no thanks to the injury that he sustained on his first start against his parent owner Roma.
