The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

READ­ING boss Jose Gomes be­lieves Lewis Baker’s pre­vi­ous Cham­pi­onship ex­pe­ri­ence will en­sure he set­tles quickly at the club.

The Roy­als signed the 23-year-old mid­fielder on loan from Chelsea un­til the end of the sea­son after a tem­po­rary stay at Leeds was cut short.

“Lewis is a player of un­doubted abil­ity who, hav­ing grown up at Chelsea, has gone on to reg­u­larly rep­re­sent his coun­try at youth level and earn first-team ex­pe­ri­ence on loan both in Eng­land and Hol­land,” Gomes said. “He also knows what it takes to meet the de­mands of this divi­sion.”
