Everton today completed their first signing of the January transfer window by bringing in 19 year old
Ademola Lookman from Charlton Athletic for an undisclosed fee thought to be in the region of £11 million.
The pacy England Under-20 international, has signed a four-and-a-half-year deal to June 2021 and will wear shirt number 31.
A skilful and direct winger, the 19-year-old described his transfer to the Blues as a “dream move”.
Lookman said: “It feels great to be an Everton player.”
“As soon as I heard about Everton’s interest I knew this would be the right place for me.”
“Everton has a big history and I was also attracted by the manager.”
“When you look at what he did at Southampton, and what he does with young players in terms of developing them, that was a big attraction.”
“It was great playing in The Championship last season and for the last six months in League One but I feel like I’m ready to make the step up to the Premier League.”
Welcome aboard Ademola, once Everton has touched you, nothing will be the same!
