"Full-back Nura Abdullahi and forwards Mirko Antonucci and Sidy Keba Coly have all committed their futures to the Giallorossi," read a statement released on club website.

"Nura and Keba have signed four-year deals that will keep them at the club until June 2021.

“Right-back Nura Abdullahi, 20, is a member of the club’s first-team squad, although he is yet to make a senior appearance for the team.

“A member of the club’s 2015-16 title-winning Primavera squad, he was promoted to the first-team group in 2017 but injuries have prevented him making his first-team debut.”
