West Bromwich Albion manager Steve Clarke is impressed with on-loan striker Romelu Lukaku's desire for success.

West Bromwich Albion manager Steve Clarke has revealed that he was impressed with Romelu Lukaku's desire for success after the striker joined the club on loan from Chelsea.

The 19-year-old has completed a season-long loan move to the Hawthorns from Stamford Bridge, and Clarke has admitted that Lukaku's hunger to improve as a player at West Bromwich Albion helped him seal the move.

Clarke told the Birmingham Mail: "He's a big strong player. His goal record before he went to Chelsea was very good.

"What I like when he got here was that he has already asked for extra shooting practice and he hasn't even started training yet.

"It shows he has got hunger and I was impressed when I spoke to him."

Lukaku joined Chelsea from Anderlecht for £18m last summer.
