Leeds move for Chelsea midfielder Lewis Baker

Leeds United have moved to snap up Chelsea midfielder Lewis Baker.

The Mirror says Baker, 23, was loaned out to Middlesbrough last season where he made 14 appearances, scoring twice.

The England U21 international is now wanted by Championship rivals Leeds, where Marcelo Bielsa has taken charge.Baker is under contract at Stamford Bridge until 2022 and has been previously loaned out to Sheffield Wednesday, MK Dons and Vitesse Arnham.

Now the Luton-born ace looks set to be on the move again without making a start yet for Chelsea.

Leeds want to buy Baker outright but could accept a loan if Chelsea refuse to sell.
