Football News

Chelsea midfielder Lewis Baker has signed a loan deal with Championship side Sheffield Wednesday.

The 19-year-old joined the Blues at the age of nine after he was spotted at a youth tournament playing for Luton Town.

He has made one appearance for Chelsea in that time and is tipped to have a good future at the club. In fact he was the scorer of the winning goal as Chelsea beat Manchester United in the Under-21 final last season.

Star in the making

In order to aid his development he is dropping down a division for the rest of the season to get some much needed first team football.

Baker signed a five-year deal with the Blues in August and is yet to go out on loan in his time at Stamford Bridge.

Hit the ground running

The move looks to have gone through in time for him to make his debut for Wednesday on Saturday against Nottingham Forest.

Despite sitting comfortably in tenth place, the Owls have struggled going forward this year having scored just 18 goals in 24 Championship games.
