Chelsea midfielder Lewis Baker has joined German Bundesliga outfit Fortuna Dusseldorf on loan for the new season.

His loan move to Germany was confirmed earlier on Wednesday.

Lewis Baker will spend the 2019/20 season on loan at the lowly German side.

The 24-year-old was hoping to force his way into the plans of new manager Frank Lampard.

Chelsea legend Lampard became the club’s manager this summer on the back of the exit of Maurizio who left the club for Italian champions Juventus after just one season at Stamford Bridge.

Ex-blues midfielder Lampard was given the Stamford Bridge job after his successful one-year stint at English Championship club Derby County.

He almost led Derby County to the Premier League before they were stopped by Aston Villa.

Aston Villa secured Premier League promotion at the expense of Derby County after they won their Championship playoff final clash 2-1 in May.

Lewis Baker has not played for Chelsea first team since signing for the West Londoners from Luton Town in 2014.

He has spent a lot of time away from the club on loan.

Lewis Baker spent the second half of last season on loan at English Championship club Reading.

He was at fellow Championship club Leeds United for the first half of the season.
