West Ham fail in Lukaku loan bid

Romelu Lukaku has rejected the chance to join West Ham United on loan for the forthcoming season, the Express understands.

The Belgium international spent last season with West Bromwich Albion, where he scored seventeen goals in thirty-five league appearances, form that convinced Allardyce to enquire about the 20 year olds availability.

However, returning Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has assured Lukaku that he will be involved in the first team this season, with the former Anderlecht man eager to prove his worth.

He made just one start in his first season at Stamford Bridge, before being taken to the Hawthorns by Baggies manager, and former Blues coach Steve Clarke.

West Ham have also been linked with a move for fellow Chelsea forward Demba Ba, who spent the second half of the 2010/11 campaign on loan at Upton Park before moving to Newcastle United.

It is understood that the club would prefer to sell Ba, rather than loan him out as they continue to freshen up their squad.
