West Bromwich Albion striker Shane Long hopes Romelu Lukaku returns to the club on loan next season.
The Belgian attacker, on a season-long loan from Chelsea, has netted 12 Premier League goals this term and Long is keen for him to be back at The Hawthorns next term rather than languish on the bench at Stamford Bridge.
"Hopefully he will come back next season,” Long told Sky Sports.
"Chelsea paid £18m for him. I thought they'd bring him in with a view to bringing him off the bench and giving him games and forcing his way into the team.
