On-loan striker Romelu Lukaku is ready to open talks with West Brom about extending his stay at The Hawthorns for another season.
The prolific Belgian international will definitely be at West Brom until the summer after parent club Chelsea opted not recall him. Instead, Chelsea reinforced their striking options with the signing of Demba Ba from Newcastle - but Lukaku was not in the least bit concerned.
The 19-year-old sees the chance of regular football at West Brom as more beneficial to his development - and he has forged a real affinity with the Midlands club. "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, who scored twice against Reading on Saturday.
