Chelsea youngster to be loaned out

Chelsea midfielder, Lewis Baker, is set to join Dutch Eredivisie outfit, Vitesse Arnheim on a season long loan as manager Jose Mourinho looks to provide more exposure to the younger players in the squad.

A short statement on the club’s website confirmed this information.

We have agreed terms with Vitesse Arnhem for Lewis Baker to spend the 2015-16 season on loan at the Dutch club.

“It will be the 20-year-old midfielder’s first opportunity to experience top-flight football abroad. He ended last season by helping MK Dons win automatic promotion to the Championship.”

Baker is the latest player to join Arnheim on loan after the likes of Bertrand Traore and James McEachron did the same  a few years back.

Christian Atsu meanwhile, has also sealed a loan move to Bournemouth while Frenchman, Gael Kakuta has finally left the club for last season’s Europa League winner, Seville. Kakuta really struggled to live up to his talent.
