DONE DEAL: Steven Gerrard Signs Nigerian Striker
Liverpool and England legend, Steven Gerrard, is keen to make a success out of his coaching career and he has signed gangling Nigerian striker, Sadiq Umar to help his ministry at Scottish Club Rangers.
Rangers Tuesday night confirmed the signing of Sadiq on a season-long loan, pending international clearance.
The 21-year-old Nigerian striker is Gerrard’s ninth summer signing having impressed for NAC Breda last season, scoring five goals in 12 matches for the Dutch outfit.
He has also netted twice in six appearances for the Roma first team.
Sadiq began his career in his homeland before joining Spezia in Italy’s Serie B.
A loan spell with Roma in 2015 convinced them to sign the 6ft 3in attacker permanently.
After a series of good performances for Roma’s youth side, he broke into the first team at the age of 18 in November 2015, scoring his first senior goal two months later.
He then spent time on loan with Bologna and Torino and at the 2016 Olympic Games he was in the Samson Siasia team that won Bronze medal for Nigeria.
