Baker has yet to make a senior appearance for Sheffield Wednesday.
Ashley Baker has tweeted his delight after extending his contract at Sheffield Wednesday by two and a half years.
The 21-year-old moved to Hillsborough from Cardiff City in January 2017, and was due to become a free agent in the summer.
But Baker has now followed in the footsteps of fellow Owls Under-23s stars Connor O'Grady, Jack Stobbs and Connor Kirby, by signing up long-term.
Over the moon to have extended my contract here at @swfc can't wait to see what the next few years hold for me here ⚪️ also big thanks to @RhysW_79 and @BaseSoccer for getting the deal done pic.twitter.com/rdNsvjSS8O— ashleybaker (@ashleybaker69) 25 April 2018
Unlike the trio, however, Baker has yet to make his first team bow for Wednesday, although he appears to be getting close - having been named among the substitutes on eight occasions this season.
And after Jack Hunt's injury, the full-back's chance could well arrive in the Owls' final two fixtures, against Wolverhampton Wanderers and Norwich City.
That said, with Wednesday's Under-23s only needing a point to secure the title against Burnley on Friday, Saturday's trip to Molineux may come too soon for Baker.
Should Sheffield Wednesday give the Welshman his chance against Wolves / Norwich?
