Nigeria’s Umar Sadiq has hit the ground running at his new club, Real Sociedad, following his deadline day transfer from Almeria.

Umar on Saturday had a memorable debut for the Blue and Whites as his well-taken goal helped Real Sociedad come from behind to claim a 1-1 draw against Atletico Madrid in their La Liga encounter.

Sociedad brought Umar as Alexander Isak’s replacement and he showed a glimpse of what he could do when he headed the equaliser nine minutes into his debut.

Kaduna-born Sadiq formerly represented the Nigeria national under-23 team and was an important member of the squad that won a bronze medal at the 2016 Summer Olympics.
