Ademola Lookman Joins Leicester on Loan

RB Leipzig winger, Ademola Lookman has joined English side, Leicester City on a season long loan.

The 23-year-old spent the whole of last season on loan at Fulham, where he was unable to help the Craven Cottage side stay in the Premier League.

Lookman joins Iheanacho and Ndidi at the King Power Stadium.

At Fulham, he made 35 appearances in all competitions, scoring four goals as the Cottagers were relegated from the Premier League.

Lookman said of his move to the King Power Stadium: “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. I think environment is very important for a player, so this is the right environment for me to work hard every single day and to help my craft be even better.”

It remains to be seen if he will reignite his career at the current FA Cup holders. His career has been one of series of loan moves and for a young player like him, that is not very good.
The former Charlton winger spent two-and-a-half years at Everton where he was unable to nail down a place, before moving to Leipzig permanently in July 2019, where he has made only 13 appearances.
