Good signing for Leeds United?

Baker is a very good midfielder who knows the Championship well, having spent the 2017-18 campaign on loan at Middlesbrough from Chelsea.

The midfielder is a brilliant footballer who will be aiming to establish himself in Marcelo Bielsa’s starting lineup right from the start of the season.

Having turned out for big clubs such as Sheffield Wednesday and Middlesbrough, the Englishman will have no problem in facing the pressure and the demands of the Elland Road outfit.

The midfielder may have yet to make a breakthrough at Chelsea, but Baker could prove to be very good signing for Leeds.
