Middlesbrough FC agree on sale of midfield star Marten De Roon

Chelsea star Lewis Baker signs another 5-year deal for the Blues

Birmingham City and Middlesbrough are both said to be after Chelsea attacking midfielder Lewis Baker.

Baker, 22, spent last season on loan at Vitesse in the Netherlands, scoring 10 goals in 33 appearances, and helped England to the semi-finals of the European Under-21s Championships this summer.

Boro had been keen to keep Marten de Roon, who played in the opening game of the season, but they will have to do without the central midfielder this season.

Despite their season opener defeat to Wolves, Middlesbrough will look to perform impressively this term and return back to the Premier League as soon as possible.

"I think in this game there is always high pressure and big things expected".

It is disappointing to see Baker depart from a fan's perspective, but playing at the Riverside should give him the opportunity to showcase his supreme talent and develop into the player he's destined to be.

Baker is more than capable of starring in the Sky Bet Championship and Boro are thought to be confident of fending off several clubs to secure the player's signature.

Darren Randolph, Ashley Fletcher, Martin Braithwaite, Cyrus Christie and Jonny Howson have also joined the Teessiders this summer.
