Romelu Lukaku: Celebrates at the Stadium of Light in November

The teenage striker moved to The Hawthorns on a season-long loan deal in August, although the Londoners inserted a clause providing them with an option to recall their player in early January.

However, the Blues have decided not to bring the 19-year-old back after the option expired on Monday.

Lukaku has performed well this season for the Baggies and is the club's leading scorer in the league with five goals.
