Baker Uncertain What His Future Holds

Nathan Baker admits he is uncertain what his future holds as his loan spell with Bristol City approaches an end.

The 24-year-old signed on a season-long loan from Aston Villa in September last year and has made 32 appearances for the club. 

Baker’s parent club sit on the verge of relegation from the Premier League as they prepare to face Manchester United this weekend and are currently managerless following the sacking of Remi Garde. 

"I don’t know what my future might hold as there isn’t a manager at Villa at the moment,” he told Bristol City Player HD

"You don’t know who is going to come in, whether they will like you or want to bring their own players in. 

“I want to be a Premier League player. I wanted to go back and still be one but that’s not going to be the case next season. 

“We’ll have to wait until the summer and take it from there.” 

Baker was brought in by former manager Steve Cotterill and has missed just one game since head coach Lee Johnson took over at Ashton Gate. 

The Villa Academy graduate has played in the most amount of matches in one season during his short career to date, so is thankful for the opportunity in BS3. 

“It’s been a good, progressive season for me,” he said. 

"Getting a run of games has been my main concern this year. I’ve had a few injuries so it’s nice to get a few games on the bounce and get my first goal too, which was nice! 

"I’ve being playing games and that’s what I came here for. I’m really thankful for that."
