Transfer news: Romelu Lukaku has joined the Baggies on loan for the season
Chelsea star Romelu Lukaku has completed a loan move to West Bromwich Albion.
The 19-year-old had a difficult first season at Stamford Bridge after his transfer for Anderlecht and turned down a move to Fulham to join the Baggies.
Lukaku told the Blues’ official site: “I’m very excited. After last season, where I was able to adjust and prepare for this season, I can’t wait to start at West Brom.
“It’s very important because, like Chelsea, West Brom play in the Premier League, but it will also be a good learning school for me where I need to work hard with the players around me.
“I’ve heard a lot of positives about Steve Clarke here and it will be important for me to listen and learn from him. He plays good football.”
