Ademola Lookman is excited at joining Fulham from German Bundesliga side, RB Leipzig on a season-long, restating his commitment to helping the club.
“I’m glad to have it over the line and done now, I’m glad I can be here to help the team,” the left-winger who won the 2017 U-20 World Cup with England, told Fulham’s website.
All the best in England, Looki! 🙌

According to Lookman, 22, he was convinced to join the newly-promoted Premier League side after being persuaded by the London club’s boss, Scott Parker, to help bolster a team that has struggled on their return to the top-flight.
“I’m glad to have it over the line and done now, I’m glad I can be here to help the team,” Lookman added.
“After the conversations I had with Scott Parker, I got a great feeling, that’s the working relationship I want to have.”
Fulham have had a rough return to the Premier League this season, losing their first three games and conceding 10 goals in the process.

The latest defeat for the Cottagers was a 3-0 home defeat to Aston Villa on Monday.
Fulham will play their next game on Thursday – a League Cup fourth-round clash at Brentford, who will be hoping for revenge after losing last month’s Championship play-off final to Fulham.
Lookman was born in England to Nigerian parents and even though he played for the English side at age-grade level, he is eligible to wear the Super Eagles’ green and white.
