Done deal: Lookman joins Iheanacho, Ndidi at Leicester City

The former Everton man return to the English top-flight weeks after his premature stay at Fulham ended in relegation

Premier League side Leicester City has completed the signing of exciting winger Ademola Lookman from RB Leipzig.

Confirming the deal, the Foxes revealed on their Twitter feed that the 23-year-old joins the Foxes temporarily for the remainder of the season.

Soccernet via Transfermarkt had earlier reported that the Foxes and the Red Bulls were locked in negotiations regarding the ex-Everton star.

But with the summer transfer window set to close in a few hours, the two clubs have arrived at an agreement that sees the former England youth international return to his country of birth.

Lookman, who has already started the process that would help him fulfil the dream of playing international football for Nigeria, will now team up with Super Eagles stars Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho, two of Leicester’s best players.

Lookman moved to RB Leipzig permanently in 2019 for €18 million after an impressive season on loan in the Bundesliga, but the Nigerian descent failed to settle in Germany.

The Super Eagles hopeful spent the second half of last season on loan at Fulham, and he was excellent as he scored four goals and provided another four assists in 35 EPL games.

But the Londoners were relegated at the end of the campaign and passed up the chance to sign Lookman permanently.
