​Sam Allardyce performs U-turn as Ademola Lookman joins RB Leipzig on loan

Everton forward Ademola Lookman has joined RB Leipzig on loan – two days after manager Sam Allardyce insisted the youngster would not be leaving.

The Toffees boss told Monday’s pre-match press conference ahead of the visit of Leicester that “he wouldn’t be available on loan because Aaron Lennon went a few days ago (to Burnley)”.

However, by Wednesday evening the England Under-21 international had made a temporary move to the Champions League-chasing Bundesliga club.

Lookman joined Everton 12 months ago from League One Charlton and scored on his debut in the 4-0 Goodison Park victory over Manchester City.

He has made 24 appearances for the Toffees in all competitions, playing 16 times this season and scoring twice – both in the 3-0 Europa League victory against Apollon Limassol last month.
