Villarreal binitially pencilled down Sadiq as potential replacement for Arnaut Danjuma, who was recently close to joining Premier League club, West Ham United before the move broke down.

    I recommend Sadiq to join Villarreal because this club has a quality and veteran coach who has championship mentality which he will introject it in Sadiq mind, then Sadiq will have this soul so he will benefit himself and Super Eagles.Coach Emery has won tow Europa league with Seville afterwards with this mentioned club Villarreal.
