Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has admitted that his future is no longer in his hands following his return to the club from West Bromwich Albion, Sky Sports reports.

The 20-year-old has enjoyed a successful campaign at The Hawthornes, bagging 17 goals, three of which came in a dramatic 5-5 final day draw with champions Manchester United. The Baggies are keen to have him back again for another season, but face competition from Swansea, who also want to snap him up on a short term deal.

However, the Belgian striker has admitted that whatever happens now will be out of his hands as he is unsure of what Chelsea have in mind for him.

“It is out of my hands now,” he said..

“I will go to the internationals, go on holiday with my friends and my missus and come back and train hard with my dad and then go to pre-season with Chelsea.

“We will see what happens. This club will always have a place in my heart. It’s the club that put me in the spotlight and re-launched my career.”

“I’ve had a great season and now I want to do better. After last year a lot of people doubted me but I kept believing in my qualities and worked hard.

“With the help of the West Brom fans and this club I just couldn’t fail here. From day one I have felt at home, I felt like I was back in Brussels. That’s why I have performed so well.

“They have helped me through the good and the bad days. I was really convinced the team would have a good season. It’s been wonderful to be here.”
