Published Add your comment

Sheffield Wednesday have secured a deal to sign highly-rated Chelsea midfielder Lewis Baker on loan. He arrives after scoring an impressive 17 goals from midfield last season for their under-21 side, including the winning goal against Manchester United in last season’s under-21 final.

The creative and attacking central midfielder is 19-years-old and has captained England at under-20 level. He comes into a team that have struggled for goals this season, scoring only 18 goals in 24 Championship matches, despite being comfortable in the top half of the table.


He is under contract with Premier League giants Chelsea until 2019, and this his first loan move of his career to date and so his adaptation to the tough and fast paced Championship will be fascinating to watch.

West Brom are reportedly weighing up a move for defender Claude Dielna, according to reports in his native France.


Dielna has impressed since joining Sheffield Wednesday on a free transfer in the summer, making 12 appearances and scoring one stunning goal that earned a injury time victory away at Blackburn Rovers.

New boss Tony Pulis is keen to strengthen his squad in the January transfer window and according to sources in France, West Brom scouted Dielna during Wednesday’s FA Cup defeat at Premier League champions Manchester City last weekend. They are now considering a move for the 27-year-old.
