Baggies to keep Lukaku

Published 1 Comments

West Brom are to retain the services of on loan Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku for the remainder of the season, the midlands club have confirmed.

Lukaku joined Albion for the entire campaign although Chelsea had the option to recall the player this month, but the deadline to take Lukaku back to Stamford Bridge expired on Monday. Lukaku has been in fine form, netting seven goals and being preferred to Shane Long as the lone central striker in some of the Baggies' recent matches.

A West Brom club spokesman confirmed: "Roman will remain at the Hawthorns for the rest of the season. Chelsea's January option to recall him expired on Monday."
