Lukaku's agent Christophe Henrotay has today told French press that Lukaku will definitely not be joining Fulham but will be joining another unnamed Premier League club on loan.
He advised "I can assure you that Lukaku will not go to Fulham. I'm currently finalising a loan deal to another Premier League team. I cannot say where or when until this is finalised but negotiations are going well so far".
He went on to say "there were talks between Chelsea and Fulham but we talked to a lot of clubs but the journalists didn't even contact me to check if the information they printed was true".
Martin Jol yesterday confirmed we're still looking at bringing in another striker and with this deal seamingly dead and the Rhodes deal not appearing to progress, I wonder who we have in mind?
