Lukaku not heading to Fulham

Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku will not be joining Fulham on loan but is close to finalising a temporary transfer to another Barclays Premier League club, according to his agent.

Lukaku, 19, had been heavily linked with the Blues’ west London rivals but reports suggest West Brom are now favourites to land him.

Agent Christophe Henrotay told Sport/Foot: “I can assure you that Romelu is not going to Fulham.

“I am currently finalising the details with another Premier League club.

“Romelu will go on loan. I cannot say which team he will join or when it will happen, but things are progressing.”
