Everton have completed the signing of England U20 international Ademola Lookman from Charlton Athletic in a deal believed to be worth up to £10m.

Steve Walsh identified the England under-20 player as a target some weeks ago and Everton have moved quickly to secure the transfer of the highly rated youngster who has signed a four-and-a-half year deal

The 19-year-old, who scored his seventh goal of the season away at MK Dons on Boxing Day is in his first full season as a professional.

Charlton wanted to keep Lookman on loan for the rest of the season but Ronald Koeman, who confirmed Everton’s interest on Wednesday, is keen for him to link up with his first team squad.
