Sadiq Umar, Super Eagles Striker, set to join Real Sociedad for €20M

    Super Eagles striker, Umar Sadiq is close to finalising his move from newly promoted La Liga club U.D Almeria to Real Sociedad. 

    According to Italian transfer journalist, Fabrizio Romano, the Nigerian striker is set to complete a move to Sociedad for a fee of €20 million.

    “[Umar] Sadiq to Real Sociedad, done deal as expected. Negotiations are completed around €20m — he will travel soon for medical tests,” Romano stated via a tweet.

    He added that the deal to transfer the 25-year-old from Almeria to Sociedad will be signed and concluded later today.

    Romano also disclosed that Sadiq is considered the ideal replacement for Alexander Isak at Real Sociedad.

    Isak has left a void in Real Sociedad when he joined English club Newcastle United for a record €70m.

    Following his departure, the Spanish club identified the Nigeria international to replace Isak at the club.
