Lewis Baker made his first-team debut for the club back in January 2014, but struggled to cement his place in the squad under a series of managers, and subsequently played out on loan nine times for clubs in the Netherlands, the EFL, Germany and Turkey.
But the 26-year-old is now back in west London playing for the under-23s, and was in line to face Brentford in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals before contracting COVID-19 and therefore being ruled out.

He was one e of 12 players from that squad to be called up to train with the first team, along with Teddy Sharman-Lowe, 18, Josh Brooking, 19, Xavier Mbuyamba, 19, Alfie Gilchrist, 18, Dion Rankine, 19, and Xavier Simons, 18, who all took part in Monday's session.
Additionally, Lewis Hall, 17, Joe Haigh, 18, Harvey Vale, 18, Bryan Fiabema, 18, and Jay Wareham, 18, were also reportedly involved.
They are next scheduled to face Aston Villa on Sunday, but there are fears the game could be postponed with the Villans also hit by the virus.
