The Newcastle Evening Chronicle understands that Chelsea striker Patrick Bamford will come under serious consideration once United confirm Steve McClaren as the clubs’ new Head Coach.
Bamford played under McClaren during 2013/14 season at Derby and despite an unhappy loan spell which returned just 2-goals in 23 appearances the England under-21 striker is said to be open to a switch North as opportunities at Stamford Bridge look limited. Bamford impressed in the Championship with Middlesboro last season and were it not for his troublesome ankle issue the youngster may have fired Boro into the BPL. However the move would come at a cost – around $17 million – representing a large investment for a player unproven at the top level who would be expected to deliver quickly. Newcastle will prioritise a striker(s) and with Charlie Austin seemingly out of reach United have been forced to target more realistic options in order to bolster their squad and avoid a repeat performance of last seasons’ capitulation.

Young Chelsea striker Patrick Bamford will not feature for the under-21s this summer as England mount their challenge to become European Champions.

Bamford impressed during his season long loan deal at Championship side Middlesbrough scoring 19-times - despite being hampered by a persistent ankle injury - and will now take the summer to rest and recover. The Teesiders' narrowly missed out on promotion to the Premier League losing to Norwich City in the play-off final. However his withdrawal will not leave under-21 manager Gareth Southgate too disappointed as the former Aston Villa defender will be able to call upon a wealth of Premier League talent including the likes of Danny Ings, Harry Kane and Saido Berahino as England establish themselves as one the tournament favourites. The U21 European Championships kick-off in just under 2-weeks.

Chelsea loanee Patrick Bamford scored early in the second half from a scramble in front of net and Kike settled it late as Middlesbrough stunned Manchester City at the Etihad.

City are truly struggling as they went from dropping points in consecutive Premier League matches to losing to Championship Middlesbrough in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Saturday. The loss is disappointing but not nearly as disappointing as how poorly City played. One potential goal from a deflected Kolarov shot hit the post late and the referee missed a hand ball in the box from a Boro defender but beyond those two incidents there wasn't much from City who started a number of first team players including Sergio Aguero and David Silva.

Chelsea and Derby County have agreed to terms on a season long loan for England U21 international Patrick Bamford.

The 20-year-old forward scored 16 goals in 29 appearances while on loan at MK Dons, but now that his deal is up he'll be joining the Rams of the Football League Championship for the remainder of the season. The up-and-coming England international will be in line for some quality playing time, but he will not be eligible to feature when Derby take on Chelsea in the FA Cup third round on Sunday. On January 31, 2012 Bamford joined Chelsea on a five-year, £1.5 million contract.
