Lukaku admits plans for Chelsea loan departure

Romelu Lukaku admits he's open to a loan move away from Chelsea.

The 18-year-old, who has made just six substitute appearances in the league since joining Chelsea from Anderlecht, has been warned he needs regular football to keep his place in the Belgium squad.

Lukaku told Voetbal International: "It is said that the clubs are lining up to loan me and that is true. I even heard that Anderlecht want me back. The club that wants me most is my preference.

"I want to be number one for Belgium, but our other strikers are not standing still. Something has to change."

Lukaku even suggested that could be the Chelsea manager, but added: "Do not get me wrong, I have no problem with Andre Villas-Boas. He is just under a lot of pressure."
