Chelsea youngster Lewis Baker has now completed his season long-loan switch out to Leeds United and here’s a taste of what fans can expect from him in 2018/19.

He’s the latest player to be featured by FFDTV and you can see the channels vast array of videos previewing nutmegs, panenkas and even things described as elastico flip flaps by Clicking Here.

The 23-year-old former England Under 21 international has come through Chelsea’s youth system, and he’s already gained a fair amount of first-team experience having taken in loan spells with Sheffield Wednesday, MK Dons, Vitesse Arnhem and most recently Middlesbrough. He arrives at Elland Road with almost 100 career appearances to his name and in that time he’s scored 21 goals.

A general showcase of his technical ability is below.

A better example of what he can do on the pitch can be seen on the following compilation.

Baker converts chips, long range shots, half-volleys, free-kicks & penalties using both feet in his successful season at Vitesse (season before last) which included winning the Dutch Cup to secure a first major trophy in the club’s history and Lewis scoring in his last game for the club (the last goal in the below video).

I can’t say he overly stood out during his time at the Riverside Stadium in 2017/18 but I wouldn’t have been looking out for him. He did make 14 appearances for them, with a return of two goals though, so it’ll be interesting to see how he slots into life with us.
