​DONE DEAL: Fulham take Leipzig winger Lookman on loan

Fulham have signed former Everton winger Ademola Lookman on a season-long loan from RB Leipzig, reports BBC Sport.

The 22 year old returns to the Premier League after joining German side Leipzig from the Merseyside club in a deal worth £22.5m last summer.

The England Under-21 forward said Fulham boss Scott Parker was the deciding factor in the move.

"After the conversations with Scott, I got a great feeling," said Lookman. "It's the working relationship I want."

He added: "He's young and hungry and I'm young and hungry as well so it's a good match. I'm glad I can be here to help the team."
