Sporting director MARKUS KRÖSCHE:

  • “We’re very pleased that we’ve finally signed Ademola Lookman. It was a long process all in all, especially as we wanted to sign him last summer. Nevertheless, we remained determined and that paid off for us. Ademola convinced us immensely during his time on loan here and will now quickly re-integrate and further enhance our attacking play with his dynamic ability.”
