Mourinho calms Lukaku's fears

Former West Brom loan star Romelu Lukaku has confirmed that he'll rejoin the Chelsea squad next season after talks with Jose Mourinho.

The Belgium international striker, 20, scored 17 goals for the Baggies during an impressive season-long loan with the club keen to get him back for a second year.

Lukaku himself was understood to be open to another loan stint as he believed his World Cup prospects would be enhanced by playing regular first-team football.

However, new Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has ended speculation by telling Lukaku that he does want to utilise him regularly as a first-team player at Stamford Bridge.

The ex-Anderlecht striker said: "I'll play for Chelsea next season. I had a chat with Jose and he'll put me in his squad."
