Young Chelsea striker sensationally heads back to West Brom…
West Brom have sensationally hijacked Everton’s move for Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku, who would rather join the club where he spent last season on loan.
Lukaku bagged 17 Premier League goals for Steve Clarke’s side, but was reportedly close to a loan move to Everton this evening, before the Baggies stepped in at the last minute to steal the player from Roberto Martinez’s grasp.
The 20-year-old Belgian has apparently rejected Everton’s advances so he can spend another year at the Hawthorns.
