Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has reportedly stated that he will only go on loan to another Premier League club, according to The Sun.
The young Belgian attacker moved to Stamford Bridge from Anderlecht last summer, but has failed to make an impact at the Champions League winners as yet.
With the Blues in the process of strengthening their side this summer a loan deal for Lukaku has been touted to allow the prospect more regular top-level football.
However, Lukaku has told Roberto Di Matteo that he wants to get experience of playing in England, and will only sign for a Premier League side if he is farmed out temporarily.
Meanwhile the burly forward has admitted that he is working hard in training to impress.
“What I learned last season is positive. Training with great players improves you.
“Now I must play. In a few weeks we’ll see what happens,” he concluded.
