Wolves did not make a senior signing on a transfer deadline day which promised so much.

Other clubs across the Premier League were not so quiet, including Leicester, who signed Ademola Lookman on loan.

Wolves were linked with the wideman earlier in August, but he has made the move to the King Power instead.

The opportunity was apparently there to sign Lookman for £15 million, with RB Leipzig willing to take a loss on the £22.5 million they paid for him in 2019 (BBC).

Lookman has spoken to Leicester’s official website about why he made the move to Brendan Rodgers’ side and said: “I’m delighted to be here. It’s a great honour to be at such an amazing club with a quality group of players.

“The facilities are incredible. It’s pretty mind-blowing and I just can’t wait to get to work here. Environment is very important for a player; this is the right environment for me to work hard every single day.

“I know a few of the players here, obviously from playing with them in the England set-up – James Maddison, Hamza Choudhury and Harvey Barnes. This is the place for me. I’m just happy to be a part of this project.”


“I’ve had the chance to speak to [Brendan Rodgers] and he’s one of the big reasons why I decided to join. He’s a coach who develops a lot of players into great players. That was the most important thing.”


As it turns out, Wolves did loan in another versatile winger from the Bundesliga in the closing days of the window.

Hwang Hee-Chan should be a decent signing, and Wolves really needed reinforcements in other areas.

Centre-half and central midfield should have been the priority but there was to be no new faces in those positions on deadline day.

Lookman could be a very decent signing for Leicester, if he can replicate the form he showed at Fulham last season.
