AS Roma youngster, Nura Abdullahi has sealed a deal to join Perugia on loan for rest of the season in the Italian lower division, Serie B.
Though Nura recently extended his contract at Roma, he is yet to play a first team game for the Serie A side, as he has been riddled by injuries.
He also had surgery on a recent heart defect, but his agents have been able to convince Perugia to receive him on loan.
This season he has been part of the squad for eight Serie A games.
The 20-year-old full back had initially been tipped for a return to another Serie B side, Spezia, but his agent said a move to Perugia is what Roma preferred for his career growth.
“Roma are keen on him joining Perugia and not Spezia, who were also keen on having him back although on loan. He still well-loved at Spezia where he got the breakthrough that earned him a move to Roma,” the Player’s representative informed.
Nura will be expected to play a role in helping 14th placed Perugia push for a promotion play-off spot at the end of the season.
