Everton chief Brands: We want to keep Lookman

Everton chief Marcel Brands says they want to keep hold of Ademola Lookman.

Brands has sent out a message which will delight Blues fans frustrated by the loss of exciting youngster Lookman to a second half of the season loan to Red Bull Leipzig in Germany.

Asked about Lookman's prospects under the new regime, the former PSV Eindhoven chief revealed he tried to sign the England Under-21 international himself.

"I can be clear in that because I know the player very well," he said.

"He was on my list at PSV (to sign). He is a very talented young player and I think he has to be moved up next year (to the first team squad)."
