The Nigeria Football Federation confirmed this development on their official twitter handle on Friday.
Umar Sadiq will not debut for Nigeria this month as Almeria refused to release him for international duty due to COVID-19 concerns.
The Spanish side,on their social media accounts, voiced concerns with the conditions put in place to guard against Covid-19.
Sadiq joins Nantes winger, Moses Simone whose club also refused to release him due to Covid-19 travel ban, which will force players to be quarantined for two weeks.
