Lukaku concentrates on West Brom, for now

20 March 2013 15:24

On-loan West Brom striker Romelu Lukaku is refusing to discuss his Chelsea future until the end of the current campaign.

The 19-year-old has been in sparkling from since joining the Baggies on a season-long deal last summer - netting 13 times in 25 Premier League appearances.

Lukaku is set to return to Stamford Bridge at the end of the season, with West Brom manager Steve Clarke negative on his chances of keeping the youngster, but the Belgian is keen to direct all focus on performing for the Baggies until then.

He told reporters: "I am just waiting until the end of season. I am just performing for West Brom at the moment. We will see what will happen and I don't want to talk about it either."

The ex-Anderlecht man also backed his Belgium team-mate Christian Benteke to depart Aston Villa and continue his progression at a 'big club' in the future.

He added: "I think, I hope, Christian will make a move to a big club so he can improve his game as well.

"This will be also important for national team, like I want to go back to my parent club in the future - but we are doing well and I hope it will continue."

Finally he revealed he hopes Frank Lampard will agree a contract extension to remain at Stamford Bridge beyond the end of the season.

The 34-year-old, who netted his 200th career goal for the Blues on Sunday, is set to depart the club in June due to his expiring deal.

Lukaku added: "He was one of the guys who helped me a lot and he introduced me to training and I am really grateful to him and really happy.

"He is very important and one of the key players and hopefully he gets an extension."
