New Leicester Signing Lookman Eager To Play With Ndidi, Iheanacho

Ademola Lookman says he can’t wait to play alongside Super Eagles duo Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi and his other new Leicester team-mates.

Lookman joined the reigning FA City champions on a season-long loan from Bundesliga side RB Leipzig, including an option to make the deal permanent next summer.

The 23-year-old impressed in the Premier League last season, playing during a loan spell at Fulham.

“I’m delighted to be here,” he told LCFCTV after signing the loan deal.

“It’s a great honour to be at such a big and amazing club with such a huge history and a quality group of players.

“The facilities are incredible. It’s pretty mind-blowing and I just can’t wait to get to work here. I think the environment is very important for a player, so this is the right environment for me to work hard every single day and to help my craft be even better.

“I’m very, very excited to see the fans and to be in the stadium with a lot of fans. I’m just looking forward to playing out there with my new team-mates and doing the best I can and hopefully getting lots of goals and assists for the team. I’ll try to help the team in any way.”
