At long last, our national nightmare is over. According to Alan Myers on Sky Sports this morning and confirmed on their website, Everton youngster Ademola Lookman will not get a transfer to RB Leipzig or anywhere else this summer.

Ademola Lookman is staying at Everton, ending a summer of interest from German side Red Bull Leipzig where he spent last season on loan.

It’s an important stand from Marcel Brands and Marco Silva, as Lookman represents superb depth in the wide areas, and immense promise for the future. He’ll join Theo Walcott, Richarlison, and Bernard to form a massively improved set of wingers this season.

Now, the onus is on the club to provide Lookman with the support, development, and playing time that he needs.

Ade, the fans adore you, and if you repay their faith, you’ll become a Goodison Park legend. Go on, lad - make us proud like we know you can.
