Sheffield Wednesday win race to sign sensational 17 goal star Lewis Baker

Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday have won the race to sign Lewis Baker on loan from Chelsea.

Sheffield Wednesday have secured a deal to sign highly rated midfielder Lewis Baker on loan.

Baker arrives from Chelsea, where he scored a stunning 17 goals from midfield last season for their under-21 side.

The teenager netted the winning goal in the under-21 final last season over Manchester United at Old Trafford.

The central midfielder is 19-years-old and has captained England at under-20 level.

He has a contract with Chelsea until 2019, and this is the first loan move of his career to date and so his adaptation to Championship football will be fascinating.

Wednesday have struggled for goals this season, scoring only 18 goals in 24 Championship matches.
