Lukaku eyeing summer loan move from Chelsea

The young forward does not regret moving to Stamford Bridge last summer despite failing to establish himself, but is keen for a temporary switch away to get regular playing time

Romelu Lukaku revealed he could leave Chelsea on loan in the summer after conceding life at the club is not what he had imagined.

The 18-year-old completed a big-money move from Anderlecht last summer but has failed to make a single Premier League start, with his six league appearances coming from the bench.

Lukaku hasn't featured since Roberto Di Matteo took over as the Blues’ interim coach but the youngster still believes joining moving to Stamford Bridge was the right decision.

"I need to play more games," he told De Standaard. "It has not been as I imagined at Chelsea. Both Andre Villas-Boas and Roberto Di Matteo have stuck with experienced players.

"I haven't always agreed with their decisions, but as a player you have to accept the decisions of the coach. I don't have any regrets about joining Chelsea. I've learned a lot."

"Let's wait and see who is appointed Chelsea manager, but as it stands I'll be going out on loan. Playing games is the most important thing for my career right now and for that reason it's better to look at other places."

Lukaku also refused to rule out the possibility of joining another Premier League club on loan, adding, "I leave all options open."
