Chelsea midfielder Lewis Baker has completed a season long loan deal to Championship side, Leeds United.

The 23-year-old will now continue his development at Elland Road under the guidance of new Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa.

Having helped Vitesse Arnhem win the Dutch Cup in 2016/17, Baker spent last season on loan at Middlesbrough.

Baker joined the club at Under-10s age group and was a pivotal part of our Under-18 side which won the FA Youth Cup in 2012.

Baker made his first team debut for the Blues in an FA Cup tie at Derby County in 2014, before ending that season by winning the club’s Young Player of the Year award, as well as our Goal of the Season prize for a superb back-heel scored during an Under-21 game against Arsenal.

Baker is highly rated within the Chelsea camp and had a great time while on loan with Vitesse, and we wish him the best in Leeds.
