Former Fulham and Everton winger Ademola Lookman is back in the Premier League as he has joined Leicester City on loan, the club have confirmed.

It has been a busy day at Leicester City. Earlier on deadline day, their midfielder Denis Praet secured a move to Serie A outfit Torino.

Lookman told LCFC TV: “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.”

Lookman, who started his career at Charlton, joined RB Leipzig from Everton in 2019, signing a five-year deal, after a previous loan spell.

He impressed on loan for Fulham last season, despite the Cottagers’ relegation from the Premier League, scoring four goals in 34 top-flight appearances.
