Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku suggests that he will reject any loan offers that do not come from a club in the Premier League.

Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has insisted that he wants to remain in the Premier League if the Blues decide to offload him on loan this season.

The 19-year-old, who has failed to launch into the first team following his move to Stamford Bridge last year, has claimed that he needs regular football and is open to a temporary switch elsewhere.

"I did not sign for Chelsea to go into another championship," said Lukaku.

Earlier reports surfaced suggesting that West London outfit Fulham were keen on taking the frontman on loan from the Champions League winners.
