Adam Forshaw set to replace departed Marten de Roon for Middlesbrough

Lewis Baker of Vitesse Arnhem celebrates scoring his teams first goal of the game during the Dutch KNVB Cup Semi-final match between Sparta Rotterdam and Vitesse Arnhem held at Het Kasteel

Both Jaap Stam's Reading and Harry Redknapp's Birmingham City had also hoped to secure a loan agreement for Baker, who was not involved in last weekend's Community Shield defeat to Arsenal at Wembley.

"It's going to be an exciting season, there are a lot of games in the Championship", the midfielder told the club's official website.

Baker started out his career with Luton before joining Chelsea in 2005.

"I'm here to give my input and hopefully get the club back to the Premier League".

The England Under-21 global, 22, was part of Vitesse Arnhem's Dutch Cup winning side last season, scoring 10 goals in 33 league games. "Hopefully we can do that together".

"We'll see where that will get to within the coming days".

Now is a better time for Conte to use and develop young stars at the club as he has openly spoken about his frustration at the club's lack of transfer activity over the summer, and rather than sign new players he should look to his own development stars, like Baker.

If Baker was to move to Boro he would be another notable addition for Garry Monk's side.

Sky sources reported earlier on Thursday that 'Boro have agreed a £13m fee with Serie A side Atalanta for De Roon's services and he has arrived in Italy for a medical. One may presume, therefore, that the clubs have some sort of provision in place for a second year on loan if Middlesbrough are promoted, as Baker ideally shouldn't be spending more than a season in the Championship.
