Lukaku not interested in loan deal

Anderlecht striker Romelu Lukaku has no desire to go out on loan if he joined Chelsea this summer.

• Chelsea closing in on Lukaku
• Anderlecht seek big Blues bid

Lukaku, 18, has been tipped to sign for Chelsea during the current transfer window, with recent reports suggesting the Blues lodged a bid in the region of £18 million for his signature.

Chelsea captured Lukaku's Belgian compatriot Thibaut Courtois from Genk last month and subsequently loaned the goalkeeper out to Atletico Madrid.

But a similar agreement would not interest Lukaku. He told Belgian TV station VTM: "When I do leave, it will not be to be loaned out as Thibaut Courtois has been. I want to go to a club where I can develop further.

"It's not that I just want to be transferred to Chelsea. At the moment, I am patient. I remain at Anderlecht and I am not thinking of a transfer."
