Mourinho will allow Chelsea midfielder to leave in January
Chelsea midfielder is all set to leave Chelsea Football Club when the transfer window re-opens in January. It is highly likely that it will be a loan move to a Championship club.
The Express believes that both Derby County and Leeds United are interested in signing the 19-year-old England Under-20 international Lewis Baker in the New Year.
Jose Mourinho keen for Baker to play
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will allow Baker to gain some valuable first-team experience in the second half of this season, with a view to bringing him back next summer and using him at Stamford Bridge from the start of the 2015/16 campaign.
Baker, who joined Chelsea from Luton Town in 2005 at the tender age of nine, has yet to make a league appearance for the Blues.
