New deal for Baker

Chelsea Football Club is pleased to announce midfielder Lewis Baker has today signed a new five-year contract.

The 19-year-old joined the club’s Academy as an Under-10, and made his first-team debut in January as a substitute in our FA Cup third round win at Derby County.

Baker also scored the goal which clinched the Under-21 Premier League title in May, and won both the club’s 2013/14 Young Player of the Year and Goal of the Season awards.

He is a regular for England Under-19s, and was a part of Jose Mourinho’s squad for the recent pre-season European training camp.
