Romelu Lukaku: Steve Clarke hopeful of keeping striker for another season on loa

Lukaku has been a massive success at the Hawthorns after arriving last summer.

The 19-year-old Belgium international has netted 12 goals this season and has admitted he would be open to the idea of extending his spell at the club.

Clarke would be delighted to keep Lukaku but stressed the matter would not be broached until the end of the season.

"If Chelsea want to leave him out for another season somewhere, I think we would have a strong chance of getting him back here, but it is a discussion for the summer," admitted Clarke.

"Chelsea are his parent club, he is their player and they will decide what they want to do first and foremost.

"Then, after that, hopefully we will get a chance to put ourselves in the hat."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
