Nura Abdullahi has joined Serie B side Perugia on an 18-month loan deal from Roma.

Despite extending his stay with the Yellow-Reds until the summer of 2021 in October, Abdullahi has been sent out to the second-tier of the Italian top-flight for regular game time.

The 20-year-old joined the Stadio Olimpico outfit from Spezia in 2015 and went on to make 22 appearances for the club’s Under-19 side, with four goals to his name as he awaits his league bow with the 2016-17 Serie A runner-up.

“The club can confirm that defender Nura Abdullahi has joined Perugia on loan. The Nigerian joins the Serie B side on an 18-month deal, until June 2019,” read a statement on Roma website.
