As reported by this portal Italian Serie A side Roma has announced the transfer of Nigeria Rio 2016 hero Sadiq Umar to Torino on an initial loan deal for the rest of the season.
The 20 year old Nigerian forward passed his medical with the Turin based Serie A side where he will link up with fellow Nigerian Joel Obi in what will be his second loan spell after spending last season on loan to Bologna.
At Torino he will provide competition for Italian forward Andrea Belloti who scored 26 Serie A goals last season, although the Italian could yet depart the club before the end of the current transfer window.
“Sadiq joins Torino on a temporary deal that runs until 30 June 2018. As part of the agreement, Torino have the option to make the transfer permanent for an agreed fee.
In that case, Roma will retain a counter-option to re-sign the player”, a statement on the website of the club reads.
