Everton boss Martinez hopeful of keeping Chelsea striker Lukaku

Everton boss Roberto Martinez is hopeful of keeping hold of on-loan Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku.

Should things go to plan for the rest of the campaign, Martinez is hopeful a place at Europe's top table will help him keep Lukaku for at least another season.

He said: "If next season is only domestic competitions then that is one approach, if it is Europe, it is completely different.

"The parent club has a big say and the player will have a big say but the loan has been a big success."
