Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku admits he'd like to extend his loan with Everton into next season.

Lukaku helped Everton thrash Stoke City yesterday.

"I want to help Everton. I admire his (Roberto Martinez's) style, everything at the club, and I thought that was the next stage I needed for this year.

"I think we can challenge all those clubs in the top six.

"I think it's not a bad idea (to stay at Everton for a second season). If we play Champions League then I think so.

"I miss European football a lot. I have to work hard and see what will be the best decision for me at the end of the season."
