Exclusive: Marcus Bent tips Ademola Lookman to improve after Leicester loan move

Ademola Lookman will take his game to another level after sealing a loan move to Leicester City on transfer deadline day, according to Marcus Bent.

The winger is set to spend the season at the King Power Stadium after making the switch from Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig.

Lookman’s latest temporary move comes after spending last term on the books of Fulham, where he scored four goals and contributed as many assists in 35 outings.

Will Lookman be a success at Leicester?

No

However, the 23-year-old’s creativity in the final third was not enough to stop the Cottagers staving off an immediate return to the Championship following relegation.

Lookman’s arrival has bolstered Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers’ wide options as he aims to build on an impressive campaign which saw the club win their first-ever FA Cup.

The Foxes also started the new season in positive fashion by getting their hands on the Community Shield at Manchester City’s expense.

Former Leicester loanee Bent reckons Lookman will find it hard to break into Rodgers’ preferred side but is sure to improve in his new surroundings.

We bet you can't get 100% on this quiz! After celebrating his 100th game in charge, how well do you remember Rodgers' time at Leicester so far? Firstly, against what team did Rodgers get his first Leicester win against?

He exclusively told Football FanCast: “Brendan is a good manager with good backroom staff.

“Although Fulham didn’t do well last season, Lookman scored some goals. He is going into a team who are doing really well and playing good football.

“I don’t think he’s going to be a first-team player just yet but, learning from the players on the training ground and backroom staff, I think he will grow and become a good player.”
