Chelsea midfielder Baker set for Fortuna Dusseldorf loan spell

The 24-year-old, who spent temporary spells with Leeds and Reading last season, heads to the Bundesliga outfit for the 2019-20 campaign

Chelsea midfielder Lewis Baker has joined Fortuna Dusseldorf on a season-long loan, joining Ethan Ampadu as the latest face deemed surplus to requirements under new manager Frank Lampard.

The 24-year-old spent the 2018-19 campaign away from Stamford Bridge with two different temporary spells, spending time in the Championship with both Leeds and Reading.

The Blues are currently contending with a transfer ban, leaving Lampard, who succeeded Maurizio Sarri in the hot seat at the London club following the Italian's exit, with limited options in his first season in charge.
