Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku joins West Bromwich Albion on a season-long loan.

Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has completed a season-long loan move to West Bromwich Albion.

The Belgian international joined the Blues from Anderlecht in an £18m transfer last summer but has found his first-team opportunities limited at Stamford Bridge.

Manager Roberto Di Matteo has acknowledged that the 19-year-old has a bright future with the club and had hinted that he may leave on a temporary basis in order to gain more regular football.

West London rivals Fulham were thought to be interested, but Lukaku will instead link up with former Chelsea assistant boss Steve Clarke at the Hawthorns.

Lukaku failed to score in 12 appearances for the Blues last season, but netted 33 times in 77 games during his time at Anderlecht.
