West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Ben Foster is delighted Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has extended his loan.

Foster is relieved Chelsea opted not to recall Lukaku during the current transfer window.

He said: "I started hearing a few whispers that there was a possibility of it happening especially with the way Chelsea were going and with Torres misfiring.

"It screamed out for him to go back. I think it would have been a huge loss for us. We would have been gutted to lose him.

"He is not only a good asset on the pitch. He is such a good lad to have around the place. He's very level-headed, has no ego to him and is always the last one off the training pitch."
