Chelsea midfielder Lewis Baker has agreed to join Leeds United on loan according to reports from the BBC.
Baker had some exceptional seasons on loan to Eredivisie outfit Vitesse Arnhem after graduating from Chelsea’s youth team and was expected to continue his footballing development when he joined Middlesbrough last season.
However, he failed to establish himself under Garry Monk, and when Monk was sacked and replaced by Pulis, his lack of minutes could best be referred to as total exile as he became a regular absentee from Middlesbrough’s matchday squad under Pulis.
The season could be described as a failure for Lewis Baker who has now agreed to join the seeming fascinating project at Leeds United under controversy-laden Argentine manager Marcelo Bielsa.
Hopefully, Bielsa’s appointment is a success whilst Baker also gets the look-in he needs to enable him to stake a claim to be an integral part of Leeds United squad next season. The player has shown talent, but it remains to be seen if it can be translated into the English game.
