Following the claims that Chelsea would be recalling loanee Lewis Baker from Leeds United owing to a lack of game time for the lad, his recall was confirmed yesterday.

Yorkshire Evening Post journalist Phil Hay backed up his previous words by Tweeting the following out on social media.

We haven’t had the best of times with Chelsea loanees as goalkeeper Jamal Blackman also returned to his parent club having picked up a serious injury, but in the case of Baker, whilst we saw flashes of what he could possibly do in the shirt, his game time reflects his overall success.

He didn’t make himself a real option for manager Marcelo Bielsa in his performances.

With fans taking to social media to offer their own thoughts on the deal, I still think some of the comments are incredibly harsh, but it is understandable as to why some fans erred that way as despite his clear talent and early promise, since returning from Vitesse he has simply stalled it seems.
