Lewis Baker set to have his loan at Leeds terminated

Leeds United have been dealt a number of blows this season, however, it appears that Marcelo Bielsa’s side may have suffered another one.

According to a report by Football Insider, Lewis Baker is set to have his loan spell at Elland Road terminated by Chelsea.

The talented midfielder is at the Whites on a season-long loan, however, he has struggled to make an impact in Bielsa’s team.


The 23-year-old has made just two starts in the Championship so far and it seems Chelsea are prepared to loan him out elsewhere.

It is claimed the Premier League giants are expected to terminate their agreement with Leeds in the next 24 hours.

Baker has spent the majority of his Chelsea career out on loan at a number of different clubs and it seems he could be about to go to another one.

The Verdict:

Baker has struggled to make a real impression in the six months at Leeds, despite being included in all their matchday squads.

Although he has rarely featured in the squad, the sheer fact that he will be leaving could come as a blow to Bielsa and his squad.

The Whites are threadbare in places within their team and with the campaign starting to hit the business end of the season, numbers could play a huge role in their efforts to win promotion to the Premier League.
