Ademola Lookman has appreciated his former teammates and Everton fans for their support in the English Premier League.

On Thursday, Lookman left Goodison Park after two years for a new challenge in the German Bundesliga with RB Leipzig.

The 21-year-old penned a five-year contract with the Bulls and he will be hoping to replicate a similar feat he enjoyed at the club during the second half of the 2017-18 season. Back then he scored five goals in 11 outings.

During his spell on Merseyside, the Anglo-Nigerian forward scored four goals in 48 appearances for Everton.

"I would like to express my sincere gratitude to my teammates at Everton football club for all the love and unwavering support you’ve shown me over the past two and a half years," Lookman wrote on Instagram.

"I’ve made some great friends at Everton who have made my experience at the club truly an unforgettable one. Whilst I’m excited to move forward with the new opportunities ahead of me, I’m going to miss my teammates and everyone associated with the club.

"Last but not least I would like to thank the fans for their support during my time at Everton, I am truly honoured to have had the opportunity to play for you. All the best for the future, love."
