Baggies keep Lukaku for season

West Brom can keep Romelu Lukaku until the end of the season, after Chelsea opted not to take him back to Stamford Bridge.

The teenage striker moved to The Hawthorns on a season-long loan deal in August, although the Londoners inserted a clause providing them with an option to recall their player in early January.

However, the Blues have decided not to bring the 19-year-old back after the option expired on Monday.

Lukaku has performed well this season for the Baggies and is the club's leading scorer in the league with five goals.
