West Bromwich Albion manager Steve Clarke has dismissed reports that Romelu Lukaku has a clause in his contract that would enable him to remain at The Hawthorns next season.
It was reported that the on-loan Chelsea forward will extend his stay in the West Midlands if he plays a certain amount of matches for the Baggies this season, but Clarke has insisted that no such deal is in place.
Clarke told reporters: "That is ridiculous. He is simply here on a season-long loan. Nothing else."
Lukaku has scored nine goals for West Brom this season.
