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."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
