This is about an important midfielder for the team who has shown significant development with The Potters. He has played many great matches over several years, becoming a key figure at just 29 years old.

Lewis Baker is not for sale this transfer window, as Stoke City wants to keep him in the squad for Steve Schumacher and Chris Cohen to continue working with this excellent midfielder. Baker has been at the club for about two years, and his performance has been crucial for Stoke City's effective play on the field.

Last season, he played 22 matches, scoring three goals but not providing any assists. He logged 1,063 minutes in the EFL Championship, a significant amount for the 29-year-old midfielder.

His best season was 2022-23, during which he played 47 matches, scored eight goals, and provided five assists. He demonstrated great midfield presence and also helped the team's offense.

A dream he hopes to achieve with Stoke City

This Chelsea academy graduate never got the chance to play in the Premier League, as the London club constantly loaned him out and never gave him the opportunity to debut with the first team.

Eventually, he found his way to Stoke City, where he hopes to reach the Premier League and compete in England's top division. Currently, he is one of the most sought-after players in the Championship, but he is not for sale.

This means we will continue to see Josh Laurent and Lewis Baker in Stoke City's midfield next season, hoping this English talent continues to grow and help achieve Stoke City's objectives for the upcoming season.
