Nigeria youth international Umar Sadiq has announced his return to Italian Serie A giants AS Roma.

The 20-year-old striker spent the 2016/17 season out on loan at Serie A club Bologna.

During his spell at Bologna, Sadiq made only seven league appearances without netting a single goal.

“My loan spell with Bologna didn’t go too well. Injuries slowed me down,” Sadiq told Liberty Radio.

“I’m fully fit now and back at Roma. Hopefully I will travel to team up with them for pre season,” he said.

“There’s a new coach at Roma and that means a fresh start for everybody,” he added.

“I’m eager, fully fit and rearing to prove my worth to him if given the chance in pre season.”

Roma reportedly paid £2 million when they signed Sadiq from Italian Serie B side Spezia at the end of the 2015/16 season.
