Ademola Lookman Joins Ola Aina At Fulham

Ademola Lookman has joined Fulham from Bundesliga side RB Leipzig on a season-long loan deal.

Lookman, 22, joins Fulham looking to get his once-promising career back on track after failing to live up to expectations at Leipzig which he joined on a permanent basis last summer following a six-month loan spell.

“I’m glad to have it over the line and done now. I’m glad I can be here to help the team,” Lookman said.

“After the conversations I had with Scott Parker, I got a great feeling, that’s the working relationship I want to have. He’s young and hungry, and I’m young and hungry as well, so it’s a good match.”

The winger who has Nigerian heritage and has declared his allegiance to the three-time African champions, started out at Charlton where he impressed before earning a big money move to Everton in 2017.

He, however, failed to kick on at Goodison Park before being shipped to Germany on loan in January of 2019.

He impressed while on loan prompting Leipzig to sign him permanently that summer but struggled in his first full season and was limited to just 13 appearances in all competitions.

He joins Super Eagles defender Ola Aina who joined on loan from Torino at Craven Cottage and would hope the move will help him rediscover his spark.
