Chelsea’s Baker joins Wednesday on loan

Chelsea midfielder Lewis Baker has joined Sheffield Wednesday on loan until 2 May.

It will be a first spell away from Stamford Bridge for the 19-year-old, who made his Blues debut as a substitute in the FA Cup third-round win at Derby last January.

Baker was named the club’s young player of the season, having scored five goals in eight games for the Under-19s in the Uefa Youth League.

He also won the Chelsea goal of the season for a back-heeled finish against Arsenal in an Under-21 game.

The teenager was rewarded for his form with a new five-year contract in August and in October was called up to the England Under-21 squad for the first time.
