Ademola Lookman Delighted about Nationality Switch
The 24-year-old winger, who currently turns out for Premier League side Leicester City but on loan from RB Leipzig, had in January 2020 put in place requirements to switch his international commitment to Nigeria and this was approved two days ago.
The 24-year-old reveals his delight at Fifa’s decision to permit him to feature for the Super Eagles. Lookman took to his social media pages to reveal his delight at Fifa’s decision and thanks Nigeria fans for the warm welcome.
He said: “Delighted to announce Fifa has approved my nationality switch,” Lookman wrote on his social media pages. “Thank you for the warm welcome and I can’t wait to put on the Super Eagles shirt and represent the country.”
Before his request to switch allegiance, Lookman, who was born in Wandsworth, South West London but qualified to represent the Super Eagles through his parents, had already featured for England at U19, U20, and U21 levels.
Ademola Lookman has so far scored three Premier League goals for the Foxes after managing 15 appearances and raking in 961 minutes of play.
