Romelu Lukaku is eyeing a loan move to another Premier League team if Chelsea don't play him this season.

Romelu Lukaku: Looking for regular football

The striker joined the Blues last summer in an £18million move from Anderlecht but managed just four starts, three of which came in the Carling Cup, in his opening season at Stamford Bridge.

The Belgian teenager is almost certain to be loaned out by Roberto Di Matteo with the possibility he could follow fellow Chelsea youngster Kevin De Bruyne to Werder Bremen.

However, the 19-year-old is determined to remain in England and is hopeful a deal can be struck with another Premier League club.

"I did not sign for Chelsea to go into another championship," said Lukaku. "Now I must play.

"It all depends on the choice of the coach and myself. I'm not someone who bangs his fist on the table.

"I have to move on to another level. I will do everything to get better. I have talked with the manager. I have very good contact with him. We will try to find the best solution for both parties."
