Lewis Baker has signed a new five-year Chelsea contract and completed a season-long loan move to Middlesbrough.

Baker, 22, spent last season on loan at Vitesse in the Netherlands, scoring 10 goals in 33 appearances, and helped England to the semi-finals of the European Under-21s Championships this summer.

“It’s going to be an exciting season, there are a lot of games in the Championship,” Baker told Boro’s website.

“I’m here to give my input and hopefully get the club back to the Premier League.

“This opportunity arose and I thought it would be a great one for me. I see this as a great opportunity for me to come here and show what I can do.”
