“Umar Sadiq is Rojiblanco! UD Almería and FK Partizan agreed the transfer of the striker for five seasons. Welcome!” Almeria wrote on their official twitter page.

The 23-year-old enjoyed his time at Serbian club Partizan Belgrade, scoring 23 goals and 19 assists in 52 appearances for the Black-Whites.
