UK Back Pages: Romelu Lukaku's Permanent Move to Everton Owns the Day
Twitter

Romelu Lukaku's anticipated return to Everton was easily Wednesday's biggest story, as Chelsea officially sent him back to Everton in a £28 million move.

The physically imposing Belgian frontman had pined to stay at the Merseyside club after helping Everton to a fifth-place finish last term.

The Mirror runs their Lukaku package with the headline "Rotten Luk," referring to Jose Mourinho's perceptions that the player was too petulant to flourish at Chelsea.

The Metro simply points out the lofty transfer fee paid by Everton.

The Sun leads with Lukaku, with a subhead hinting at the player's preference for Roberto Martinez over Jose Mourinho.

The Express has Lukaku on its front but also runs a Commonwealth Games package and a piece on Jimmy Anderson's latest comments.
