BAKER TO COPY PAL BAMFORD

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

LEWIS Baker is hop­ing his loan spell at MK Dons will be just as suc­cess­ful as Chelsea team-mate and for­mer Dons loa­nee Pa­trick Bamford.

The 19-year-old mid­fielder signed for the Dons this week and will stay in Mil­ton Keynes un­til the end of the sea­son.

The Eng­land U21 in­ter­na­tional aims to fol­low in the foot­steps of fel­low Chelsea youth star Bamford, who hit 18 goals in 37 league games while with the Dons.

“Pa­trick’s a great player and a great per­son,” said Baker. “He’s now in the Cham­pi­onship with Mid­dles­brough and I per­son­ally think he could play in the Pre­mier League. He came here and did re­ally well and hope­fully I can too.”
