Three reasons Leeds United must sign Everton winger Ademola Lookman on loan

According to reports in the Liverpool Echo, Everton are currently weighing up whether to send out of favour winger Ademola Lookman out on loan for the rest of the season.

The 20-year-old has found first-team minutes hard to come by this term and he has failed to make the squad for four of the Toffees’ last six Premier League matches.

The arrival of Theo Walcott from Arsenal and the return of Yannick Bolasie from a long-term injury only look to have pushed the England U21 attacker further down the pecking order.

The report adds that while the Merseyside outfit are currently reluctant to let Lookman go, they have yet to make a definite decision on his short-term future.

Meanwhile, four Championship matches without a win – including last weekend’s crazy 4-3 defeat at home to Millwall – has seen Leeds United drop down to 10th in the table, although they are still only four points adrift of the play-off positions.

Manager Thomas Christiansen will be keen to freshen up and strengthen his squad before the January transfer window slams shut on Wednesday, and bringing Lookman to Elland Road for the remainder of the campaign could prove to be a shrewd move.
