• Chelsea Starlet Banned From Speaking About His Future While on International Duty This Summer

    News Sun 11 Jun 2017

    ​Chelsea midfielder Lewis Baker has been asked to keep mum on his future whilst on duty with the England Under-21 side this summer.

    The 22-year-old, who registered 15 goals and two assists in 37 appearances for Vitesse Arnhem en route to a Dutch Cup win last season, is wanted by a host of Premier League clubs, with Bournemouth, Newcastle and Swansea thought to be front-runners.

    However, Three Lions Under-21 manager Aidy Boothroyd has prohibited all transfer talk before the Euros, also blocking all agents from contacting the players as he wants them focused on bringing home silverware.

    “In terms of preparing for matches, there’s a curfew in place,” the coach said, via ​The Sun, ahead of the team’s group-stage match against Sweden on Friday.

    “I want them to focus on the game. Speculation is rife at this time of year. But the players all realise they are here to play for England.

    “Things will happen and I’m sure there will be a couple of requests.

    “But we don’t allow any agents or families to stay in the hotel.”

    It is still unclear whether or Baker will be allowed to leave on loan again or compete for a place in Antonio Conte’s first team. At the moment, though, he won’t be allowed to speak to anyone concerning his future.

    Unless, of course, he receives a text from Conte.
