According to his agent Pedro, Usman has subsequently been loaned out to first division Uniao Madiera, where he will play alongside compatriot Shehu Abdullahi.

Last season, the Sokoto-born star played for FC Taraba, who have since been relegated.

He is a versatile midfielder, who could play either as a defensive or offensive player.

He has a good technique and he is full of running.

He has been capped at U23 and full international levels by Nigeria.
