Leeds completed the deal to sign highly rated Chelsea midfielder Lewis Baker on a one-year loan this morning. The 23-year-old England youth international arrives with a bubbling reputation and it’s expected Leeds could sign him on a permanent basis if it’s a success.
I have been speaking with a Middlesbrough fan, and another author on this site regarding Baker. The attacking midfielder spent last season on loan in the North East and didn’t really progress like he, Boro and Chelsea had hoped and most probably expected. I have asked him five questions to help us understand a bit more about Baker and what we can expect as well as why things didn’t work out for the player at Boro last season.
4. What was the one thing that held him back at Boro?
