Roma Nigerian striker Sadiq Umar has gotten his wish to leave Italy as he is few details away from agreeing a loan move to Dutch side NAC Breda from Roma following the termination of his loan deal with fellow Serie A side Torino.
Sadiq impressed in the three games he played for Torino in the Serie A, but he still wasn’t considered good enough to command a regular shirt in the team.
Last season injuries and fitness issues affected his time at Bologna where he was also on loan for the season. However, his impressive form for Roma in pre season earned him a contract extension at the club.
The striker who represented Nigeria at the Rio 2016 Olympic, and finished as top scorer with four goals will in the coming days join NAC Breda on loan for the rest of the season.
” The move is 80% done. The only reason why it is not yet official is because Roma want to sort out the future of Edin Dzeko before giving their green light for the move to happen”, his Nigerian Intermediary told Owngoalnigeria.com in an exclusive chat.
” Sadiq had options from France, Germany and Portugal but there is the promise of regular game time at NAC Breda, something he needs at this stage of his career”, he concluded.
NAC Breda are 16th on the 18 team log of the Eredivisie with 16 points from 19 games, no thanks to their goal shy strikers as they have only found the back of the net 20 times.
They will be hoping Sadiq provide the goals that will help them preserve their top division status, as they are presently one point away from relegation to the second division.
