Lukaku wants West Brom stay: I don't care about Chelsea

Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku wants to stay with West Bromwich Albion long-term.

Lukaku has scored nine goals for Steve Clarke's men this season - but Chelsea opted to sign Demba Ba this month rather than give the 19-year-old a chance.

But the 6ft 3in ace said: "I don't care about what Chelsea are doing at the moment. I'm thinking only of myself and West Brom.

"I'll hopefully stay here for the next two years.

"The next couple of years will be good for me at West Brom. It's very important for me to play. We've a good squad, a manager who is very good, we've top players and hopefully, if I continue like this, I'll get more regular football.

"It's more beneficial to stay here than go back to Chelsea.

"We've not spoken yet but, hopefully after the January window, we'll start talking about that."
