Sadiq Umar gets new number at Real Sociedad

Umar spent most of last season on the sidelines because of an injury, but he would be hoping to play a vital role for txuri-urdin next season 


Super Eagles striker Sadiq Umar has gotten the number 19 jersey at Real Sociedad following the departure of Alexander Sorloth to Villarreal, Soccernet reports.


Umar joined Spanish Laliga side Real Sociedad from Almeria for a club-record €20million fee last summer. The 26-year-old striker hit the ground running, scoring on his debut. However, he sustained a nasty knee injury in his third game for the club against Getafe.
