Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku wants to return on loan to West Brom for a second season to help him develop into "a great player" and be ready to start when he eventually goes back to Stamford Bridge.
Lukaku is in his first campaign at The Hawthorns and scored his sixth goal for the Baggies when heading the winner in Saturday's 2-1 home success over Norwich. Chelsea have the option to recall the 19-year-old during the January transfer window.
But Lukaku said: "I want to stay here. I've had so many questions in the last few weeks asking 'are you staying?' I have a lot of contact with Chelsea, but they are asking questions about my development and I tell them I'm very happy to be here."
