Meanwhile, former Chelsea midfielder Dennis Wise has said that it would not fair to put too much pressure on Lewis Baker and Jamal Blackman at Leeds.

Leeds have signed midfielder Baker and goalkeeper Blackman on loan from Chelsea in the summer transfer window.

Derby have also secured the services of defender Fikayo Tomori and midfielder Mason Mount on loan from Chelsea.

Chelsea legend Wise told The Daily Star: “It’s not about them two it’s about the whole team. They’ve got quality because they’re at Chelsea. It’s as simple as that.

“It’s the same as what Derby have done, they’ve brought quality in, young players. It’s not about these young boys, the quality boys that have come from Chelsea to Leeds and the quality boys that have come from Chelsea to Derby as well.

“You don’t really want to put pressure on these boys and I think it’s a collective thing that has to happen and not just about boys that have come from Chelsea.”
