Nigerian starlet Ademola Lookman is excited to join Premier League side Everton and spoke about his admiration for ‘The Toffees’ manager Ronald Koeman after joining from Charlton Athletic on Thursday.
The 19-year-old joined the Premier League team on a four and a half year deal for an undisclosed fee, but it is believed Everton will pay ‘The Addicks’ in the region of £10-£11million.
"It feels great to be an Everton player," Lookman told Everton official website.
"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."
