Leicester Confirm Signing Ademola Lookman On Loan Deal

RB Leipzig winger Ademola Lookman has now officially joined Leicester City on a season-long loan deal with an option to buy, according to Sky Sports.

The 23-year-old former Charlton winger spent last season on loan at Fulham, making 35 appearances in all competitions and scoring four goals as the Cottagers were relegated from the Premier League.

Lookman spent two and a half years at Everton before moving to Leipzig permanently in July 2019, where he has made only 13 appearances.

After joining the King Power Stadium outfit Lookman said:

“I'm delighted to be here. It's a great honour to be at such a big and amazing club with such a huge history and a quality group of players.

“The facilities are incredible. It's pretty mind-blowing and I just can't wait to get to work here.
