Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku is unable to join Everton on loan this season.

The Toffees were reportedly keen to bring the 18-year old to Goodison Park in January but they will not be able to do so because of a FIFA ruling.

Lukaku has already played senior football for both Anderlecht and Chelsea in the 2011/12 season and FIFA's rules will not allow him to play for a third.
