Ademola Lookman has reassured Everton fans on his future by saying that the transfer window has now closed and his focus remains on breaking into Marco Silva's side.

The 20-year-old has managed just 46 minutes of Premier League football this season, remaining an unused substitute for the last three league games as preference is given to Richarlison and Theo Walcott on the flanks.

German side RB Leipzig were desperate to bring Lookman back to the Bundesliga after a very successful loan spel during the second half of the 2017-18 campaign, where he scored five goals in 11 appearances.

 

He told Sky Sports: "I feel more settled now, the transfer window is behind me so I'm getting my head down and working hard. I'm at Everton and I will do my best and train hard."

Lookman, an £11 million signing (BBC Sport) from Charlton Athletic in January 2017, has clocked up 27 appearances in all competitions for Everton, scoring against Manchester City and a brace against Apollon Limassol.
