Romelu Lukaku joined Everton on a season-long loan from Chelsea on deadline day 2nd September 2013.

The striker was on loan at West Brom last season and scored 17 goals.

Luka made his debut at 16 for Anderlecht and became a regular for the next two seasons.

Chelsea bought him in 2011. He played mainly in the League Cup and for the reserves.

At the start of 2012/13 he joined WBA on loan for a season.

Back at Chelsea this season, the 20 year old made just three substitute appearances for Jose Mourinho's side including in the Uefa Super Cup before coming to Everton.

Luka is an established Belgian international with 22 caps.

The clever clogs speaks French, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese, and English.

After scoring 15 league goals in 31 games in 2013/14, Everton fans were wanting the 21 year old to stay at the club.

After playing in the World Cup in Brasil, the fans got their wish when Everton paid £28m as Rom signed a 5 year contract keeping at the club until 2019.
