'No question!' Lukaku prefers season-long West Brom stay to Chelsea return

Romelu Lukaku is adamant that he would rather stay on loan at West Brom all season than return to Chelsea in January.

The 19-year-old striker scored his sixth goal of the season to seal a 2-1 win over Norwich City on Saturday and took to Twitter to declare his intentions.

The Belgian wrote: “I’d like to stay here for the rest of the season and there’s no question about that !!!”

Lukaku moved to Chelsea from Anderlecht in the summer of 2011 for £22 million (€27m) but was unable to make an impact in his first season, joining Steve Clarke’s side on loan as a result.

His temporary manager moved after the forward’s winner to hail his “big talent”, having drawn level with Blues counterpart Fernando Torres on six Premier League goals in 2012-13.
