Dutch club NAC Breda have signed Nigeria Olympic striker Sadiq Umar on loan until the end of the season.

The tall forward arrives from Italy's AS Roma, who Umar joined in July 2015 from second tier side Spezia Calcio.

NAC Breda have the option to sign Umar, 20, for an additional season at the end of the loan period.

"Sadiq (Umar) is a very talented player who has already played at the top level," Technical director Hans Smulders told Breda's official website.

"In his search for more playing time, Sadiq now has to compete with the other strikers in our team.

"We took him on loan for half a year, but we've expressed the intention to extend this in the summer until mid-2019."

Umar has made six appearances for AS Roma, scoring two goals.

He has previously had loan stints at Bologna and Torino but failed to score for both clubs.

Umar, who is still awaiting a senior debut for his country, starred at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio scoring four goals to help Nigeria win a bronze medal.

Nac Breda sounds like the name of a Ghanaian whorehouse.

Scored on his debut today. He'll do well in Holland but I don't know about the step up from there. Many strikers have played well in the Dutch league then flopped after stepping up.

Sadiq Umar interviewed about his goal (and what was technically an assist, I guess, on the 5th goal). :clap:

Highlights from NAC TV :glare: . Heracles are kind of bad, and were down a man .... but the main thing for me is watching Umar's decisions/actions.

I wouldn't say his one-two on the 5th goal necessarily "created" the chance, but he did what he was supposed to do as a centre-forward playing with his back to the opponent's goal. His goal itself was interesting .... some strikers would have shot sooner, but he took his time, used his body to shield the defender, waited for the goalie to commit, sort of rounded the goalie .... and voila. For some reason :) the word "gangling" comes to mind. He only played 3 minutes.



PS: Waiting to be accused of being an agent .... :sneaky:

He is such a tall guy of course he is going to appear "gangling".
Actually his tall frame belies his strength on the ball and his speed.
He is very hard for defenders to dispossess and holds up the ball very well.
His subtle touch created the 4th goal and his 5th goal was nicely taken
all on his debut
it is crazy to me he was our top scorer at the olympics but hasnt been invited to the SE squad
when the likes of Osimehm who couldnt even make the olympic squad have been called up on multiple occasions
not sure what you mean by he "only played 3 minutes" That's clearly not correct

He couldn't have played only 3 minutes becos his assist was in the 80th minute and his goal was in the 81st.
Unless he was substituted a few minutes after coming on and scoring, he played for at least ten minutes if not more.

My bad. I am a very bad agent. :)

I think what I meant to say was he scored (or assisted) 3 minutes into his debut, but somehow the sentence got truncated. It may have something to do with the bottle of OHMS nearby (ask Ohsee what that is, he grew up drinking OHMS).
