Transfer: What Ademola Lookman said after becoming most expensive Nigerian winger


Ademola Lookman

RB Leipzig on Friday, confirmed the signing of Everton winger, Ademola Lookman, in a permanent move.

Lookman enjoyed a successful loan spell at Leipzig in 2018 but struggled to make a first-team impact upon his return to Goodison Park last season.

He has now been allowed to depart on a permanent basis, penning a five-year deal in a move believed to be worth £22.5m.

The deal makes him the most expensive Nigerian winger ever.

Before now, it was Ahmed Musa’s £16.6million move from CSKA Moscow to Leicester City, in the summer of 2016.

“I am very happy to be back here and would like to continue where I left off in the second half of 2018 for RB Leipzig.

“Of course, I am also looking forward to seeing my teammates again and would like to help the team to continue to celebrate great successes.

“Finally I can play again in the Red Bull Arena in front of this great backdrop and the fans. And last but not least, I would like to thank God, the fans and RB Leipzig for making my move possible,” Lookman told RB Leipzig’s official website.
