“You always have that dream, and I still have that dream now,” Baxter told Chelsea’s app the fifth stand of his hopes of one day representing the Blues.

“When I was an eight-year-old Cech was the goalie, and I was like ‘that’s what I want to do when I’m older, be him!’’

“The spine of my youth team was Fik in defence, Mason in midfield and Tammy up front. That’s now the spine of the team in the Premier League, which is amazing. So many people in the Academy deserve so much credit for that.”

The young goalie is currently on loan at Scottish club Ross County.

With Chelsea currently having a weakness in the goalkeeping department, Baxter will only be bidding his time and hoping to improve while on loan.
