Lewis Baker excited to work with Marcelo Bielsa at Leeds United

New signing Lewis Baker admits that he is excited to work with Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa after leaving Chelsea on a season-long loan deal.

Lewis Baker has admitted that he is delighted to have been given the opportunity to work with Marcelo Bielsa at Leeds United.

On Saturday morning, Leeds confirmed that they had secured the season-long loan signing of the Chelsea midfielder, who is spending his sixth temporary spell away from Stamford Bridge.

Former Argentina boss Bielsa has just replaced Paul Heckingbottom at Elland Road, and Baker has spoken highly of the new manager of the Yorkshire giants.

The 23-year-old told LUTV: "Obviously if you know your football, you know he's a massive manager.

"He's managed some of the best players in the world and he's got good aspirations for this season. I spoke to the director of football as well for some time and it seemed like a good season for me."

Baker has previously played 16 matches at Championship level with Sheffield Wednesday and Middlesbrough.
