Roma striker Umar Sadiq joins Rangers on loan



Rangers have agreed a deal to sign the AS Roma striker Umar Sadiq this summer.

The move has been confirmed on the club’s official website and the player will spend the next season on loan at Ibrox.

Steven Gerrard was keen on improving his attacking options and the Nigerian forward should prove to be a valuable option for him next season.

Earlier in the summer, the Rangers manager confirmed that he is a fan of the striker and that Sadiq would improve the side a lot.

The 21 year old is very highly rated at Roma as well. However, he is not ready to start for them just yet. He needs to play week in week out in order to continue his development and a loan move is ideal for him at this stage of his career.

The young striker was on loan at NAC Breda during the second half of last season where he managed to score five goals in 12 appearances.

Rangers have been very active in the transfer market so far this season and Gerrard has already signed the likes of Allan McGregor, Nikola Katic, Connor Goldson, Scott Arfield, Lassana Coulibaly and Ovie Ejaria so far.

Here is how the fans reacted to the transfer.
