Several times this season, when Fernando Torres has been misfiring, we`ve cast an envious eye to the Hawthorns and wondered about Romelu Lukaku.

Since joining West Bromwich Albion, on loan, the young Belgian has shown that, given the opportunity, he can score goals in the Premier League.

Several people have suggested we should have called him back when given the opportunity.

However, is that as easy as it seems?

Flicking through the pages of one tabloid this morning, it looks as if Lukaku`s loan spell could go on well beyond this current season.

Seemingly, so the article goes. Chelsea have given their blessing for Lukaku to remain a Baggie if he hits a certain number of appearances this season.

Now whilst accepting that we will receive a loan fee, can somebody please tell me why we spent £18 million on kid that, so far, has knocked in 9 goals in 26 appearances but looks further away than ever from pulling on a blue shirt?
