Ademola Lookman
The 20-year-old finished his temporary stay with a bang and could see the Bulls scampering for a permanent deal in the summer

Ademola Lookman delivered a top-notch display as RB Leipzig thrashed hosts Hertha Berlin 6-2 in Saturday's Bundesliga encounter.

In what could be his final game for the Bulls, the on-loan Everton put up a performance that could see Leipzig push further for a permanent deal.

The diminutive winger starred with a goal and two assists.

Dayot Upamecano opened the scoring at the Olympiastadion two minutes into the encounter but Vedad Ibisevic drew the hosts levelled moments later.

Lookman helped Ralph Hasenhüttl's side regain the lead in the eighth minute after cutting in from the left to score. The youngster later assisted Jean Augustin for his side's third goal before the interval.

After the restart, Timo Werner and Jean Augustin, off a Lookman assist - stretched the lead in the 49th and 54th minutes respectively.

In the 64th minute, Salomon Kalou pulled a goal back for the Old Lady with his 12th league goal of the season but was not enough to inspire a comeback.

There was time for Bruma to score the sixth as RB Leipzig finished sixth in the Bundesliga table to secure their spot in the Uefa Europa League with 53 points from 34 games.

Guinea midfielder Naby Keita played his last game for the Bulls before his switch to Liverpool in the summer. And with the huge win on Saturday signalling the end of his loan deal, Lookman is expected back at the other side of Merseyside with Everton.
