Chelsea transfers: Lukaku wants another season on loan at West Brom
Chelsea transfers: Romelu Lukaku eyes another season on loan at West Brom after scoring nine goals for the Baggies this term
Romelu Lukaku has expressed his desire to spend another season on loan at West Bromwich Albion from his parent club Chelsea.
The Belgium international scored twice as Steve Clarke’s men suffered a 3-2 loss to Reading at the Madejski Stadium on Saturday.
It took the 19-year-old’s tally to nine goals in 20 Premier League appearances this term after moving on a season-long loan to the Hawthorns in August.
Lukaku was signed in a £13m deal from Anderlecht in 2011, but he is keen to continue his development in the English top flight at West Brom before retunring to Chelsea.
“At this time I’m just looking at my own [situation] and West Brom. I don’t really care about what Chelsea are doing at the moment,” said Lukaku.
“The next two years will be good for me at West Brom. They will help me build up for a great career, that is for sure.
“Hopefully, after the January window, we will be able to start talking about that.
“We have a good squad. We have a manager who is very good, we’ve very good players that can help him every day and hopefully if I continue like this I
will get more regular football.
“You have to be somewhere where you are connected with the people. You have to be in a good environment. Where I am now is similar to when I was in Anderlecht.
“That’s why I have settled very well here. On the pitch, I want to win.”
