Former Vitesse Arnhem boss Peter Bosz raved about 'unprecedented' Leeds signing Lewis Baker

Lewis Baker of Vitesse Arnhem celebrates scoring his teams first goal of the game during the Dutch KNVB Cup Semi-final match between Sparta Rotterdam and Vitesse Arnhem held at Het Kasteel...

Leeds signed Lewis Baker last week.

Leeds United clinched the loan signing of Lewis Baker from Chelsea over the weekend.

The 23-year-old is a terrific prospect who has won it all at youth level, but has found loan spells in English football tricky.

He is aiming to turn that around at Leeds United, and recapture the form he showed on loan at Vitesse Arnhem in Holland where he struck 15 goals from midfield across two seasons.

For Vitesse he was playing under Peter Bosz, who went on to lead Ajax to the Europa League final in 2016/17.

Bosz is a big believer in Baker's talent, and raved about his skill set.

Quoted by Chronicle Live, Bosz raved: "He exchanges both feet effortlessly.

“Not that his one foot is much better than the other. He can shoot great with both feet. Corners, free-kicks, penalties.

“It’s unprecedented, even at the highest level in Europe, you rarely get that.”
