After his spell at the Global Energy Stadium though he’ll head back to Stamford Bridge. What beckons for him there remains to be seen, but having been with the club since he was a child, he’ll be desperate to make an impact in London.

Baxter’s reflected on his brilliant time so far with the Blues, insisting it’s a ‘great time’ to be a youngster at the club, with the likes of Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount all thriving.


“Chelsea was a great place to grow up,” said Baxter. “I really enjoyed my time in the academy. I have so many people to thank, not just for my development as a player, but as a person.

“Getting the opportunity to train with some of the best players in the world at 17 was great. I’m very fortunate that they also sent me out on loan for experience at 17. That’s really helped me coming to a place like this.

“All the players and supporters at the club have been great. I’ve had chats with senior players and they all advised me to go out on loan. A lot of the first-team players are the club are players I’ve been with since the age of eight.

“It’s a great time to be a young player at Chelsea.”
