This is an extremely interesting and thoughtful article. Lookman appears to be a very, very good prospect, he has made a brave choice to develop his skills in Germany and had a great start.

I am hopeful, but not particularly confident, that we can have the benefit of this in years to come.

Me too Peter. Nice to read at least that there is no option to buy at the end of the loan... although that's no guarantee that the lad won't decide he likes it there and ask to stay...

We've been sorely lacking in entertainment and excitement this season, and Lookman is one of the few that could give it to us. Although prone to losing the ball in areas where he shouldn't be playing around, that only comes with experience, which you don't get sat on the bench or left out altogether.

Good luck to him and hope he still wants to be with us come next season.
