Ademola Lookman has thanked his Everton teammates and the fans for their unwavering support during his time at the club, Completesports.com reports.
Lookman, 21, who impressed during a loan spell with German side, RB Leipzig in the second half of the 2017-18 season, signed a five-year contract with the Bundesliga club on Thursday.
He scored five goals in 11 appearances during his previous stint with RB Leipzig.
Lookman scored four goals in 48 appearances for Everton after joining from Charlton for £11m in January 2017.
“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. I’ve made some great friends at Everton who have made my experience at the club truly an unforgettable one,”
Lookman wrote on Instagram.
“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.”
Lookman, who has made 11 appearances for England U21s, becomes Leipzig’s second Premier League signing of the transfer window, after Chelsea youngster Ethan Ampadu joined on a season-long loan on Monday.
