Report: Chelsea agree a deal for midfielder with Dutch side

Lewis Baker

Chelsea midfielder Lewis Baker has agreed to a second loan spell with Vitesse Arnhem, according to the Metro.

The report suggests that the 21-year-old Baker, who made 34 appearances for the Dutch Eredivisie side last season, will continue his development in the Netherlands.

The young Englishman claimed that there were several other clubs that were interested in his services but decided to stay at the Dutch club after he spoke with his family and parent club Chelsea.

Baker has the right mindset and has expressed his desire to hone his skills at a club that he should continue to see playing time in the midfield as a playmaker.

Baker set for Vitesse return

Chelsea first approached Baker when he was just nine years of age back in 2005 and he has since went on to progress through the Blues academy.

On the international front he recently completed in the Toulon Tournament and helped guide an under-20 England side to a victory over under-20 France in the final, scoring the opening goal in the process.

Baker has just made one senior appearances in all competitions for Chelsea, so another loan spell should do him and Chelsea well. If he continues to develop, it will not be long until we see him and Ruben Loftus-Cheek as the prefer pairing in the Chelsea midfield.
