Newly promoted Premier League outfit Fulham have signed striker Ademola Lookman on a season-long loan from RB Leipzig.

The 22-year-old former Charlton and Everton forward said Fulham boss Scott Parker's passion had persuaded him to make the switch to southwest London to help bolster a team that has struggled on their return to the top-flight.

"I'm glad to have it over the line and done now, I'm glad I can be here to help the team," said Lookman.

"After the conversations I had with Scott Parker, I got a great feeling, that's the working relationship I want to have."

Parker's men have conceded 10 goals in losing their opening three games, including a 3-0 home defeat to Aston Villa on Monday.

Fulham's next match is Thursday's League Cup fourth-round clash at Brentford, who will be seeking revenge after losing last month's Championship play-off final to Fulham.
