Belgian Romelu Lukaku remained coy on his immediate future, when quizzed about whether he would be heading back to Chelsea.

Lukaku has sparkled during his current loan spell at The Hawthorns, which has thus far seen him bag 13 goals from 25 league appearances.

But asked whether he would be definitely back at Chelsea in the summer, he admitted he waiting until the end of the season.

"I am just waiting until the end of season, I am just performing for West Brom at the moment we will see what will happen and I don't want to talk about it either," he said.

Lukaku's strike-partner Christian Benteke has also had a glittering campaign during his first season with Aston Villa and he hopes his progression continues, perhaps with a move to a 'big' club.

"I think, I hope Christian will make a move to a big club so he can improve his game as well," he said.

"This will be also important for national team, like I want to go back to my parent club in the future - but we are doing well and I hope it will continue."

Lukaku also spoke about Frank Lampard, and insisted he would love to see him stay at the club - given how good he was to him during his time there last season.

"He was one of the guys who helped me a lot and he introduced me to training and I am really grateful to him and really happy," he said.

"He is very important and one of the key players and hopefully he gets an extension."

couple of wins and everything is OK! Sorry you still haven't got a striker who can consistently goals. Keep searching. I don't think Liverpool will make top four not even Europa League this time around.

f he can find the right player? Surely the manager of one of Europe's top clubs has a well-researched short-list and has a good idea of who he wants to bring on-board? If I can find the right player sounds like someone going out on Saturday night on the pull, and the nearer you get to midnight the lower your standards drop.
