Roma announce Umar departure

Young Nigerian striker Sadiq Umar will represent Bologna this season after Roma agreed to a season-long loan deal.

The 19-year-old was only recently signed permanently by the Giallorossi after spending last season on loan at the Stadio Olympico.

The deal includes an option for Bologna to make the transfer permanent at any point during the season, but if they do activate that clause, Roma will retain a buy-back option on the player for the duration of his career with the Greyhounds.

Umar is yet to represent the Wolves senior side, but did play 19 games for the youth team last season, scoring an impressive 19 goals.

He further impressed with the Nigeria under-23 team that recently won a goal medal at the Rio Olympic games with Umar scoring twice in the tournament.
