Everton Signs Ademola Lookman for £7.5 million
According to Information NG, Everton Football Club have completed their first business of the new year by signing 19-year-old Ademola Lookman for an initial £7.5 million from Charlton.
The winger, who made 49 appearances for Charlton after coming through the club’s youth set-up, has signed a four-and-a-half-year contract which will keep him at Goodison Park until the summer of 2021.
Charlton had been keen for Lookman to remain at The Valley on loan for the rest of the season, but Everton boss Ronald Koeman wants his new recruit to be involved with his first team squad.
On his new signing, Ronald Koeman said; On his part, Lookman is delighted to have made the move and believes working under Koeman is exactly what he needs to further his career as he makes the step up to the Premier League.
He 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.
The player also announced his switch via twitter. He tweeted;
“Delighted to have signed a long term contract @Everton. It wouldn’t be possible without God. Special place in my heart to all at CAFC❤”
