Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku will not be joining Fulham on loan, according to the player's agent.
• Lukaku: I must play
Lukaku, 19, struggled to make an impact at Stamford Bridge after joining from Anderlecht last summer for a substantial fee, and he is expected to spend the 2012-13 campaign elsewhere to further his development.
It had been reported that he was set to join Chelsea's West London rivals Fulham, but it appears he is bound for another English club.
"I can assure you that Romelu is not going to Fulham," agent Christophe Henrotay said in Sport/Foot. "I am currently finalising the details with another Premier League club.
"Romelu will go on loan. I cannot say which team he will join, or when it will happen, but things are progressing."
Henrotay said Lukaku had spoken to Fulham but added: "We have spoken to many clubs. Those journalists at The Sun spread those rumours without even checking with me."
