Leicester City coach Brendan Rodgers said he missed having Ademola Lookman in his squad.
The Super Eagles player has been doing remarkably well in the Serie A with Atalanta, scoring four goals and making three assists so far. Leicester couldn’t give him a permanent deal in the summer window, because of budget constraints according to coach Rogers.
“I’ve been in contact with him and congratulated him,” the City boss told reporters on Lookman.
“He’s done fantastic. He’s performed very well, he’s enjoying his time there and I’m delighted for him.
“He was fantastic here, he scored goals, created goals, he worked very hard, all the things you’d want from a young winger. I’m really happy for him because he’s a great guy and very devoted to his football. He’s started very well with Atalanta.”
“We could never guarantee signing him.
“I think if we were getting in anyone it was only on loan, and then it didn’t happen. Unfortunately it was a deal we couldn’t do.”
