19-goal star looking for Chelsea chance

Patrick Bamford has opted against a move to Newcastle in a bid to stay at Chelsea and impress Jose Mourinho ahead of the 2015/16 campaign, according to reports from The Times.

The 21-year-old has returned to Stamford Bridge following an impressive loan spell with Championship side Middlesbrough, in which he netted 19 goals in all competitions.

Despite his heroics with Boro, Bamford has been tipped to make another temporary switch away from West London during the looming transfer window after confessing that he’s ready to make a short-term move in a bid to keep playing regularly.

Reports reveal that new Magpies chief Steve McClaren has already enquired about taking Bamford to Newcastle, however, the player himself is eager to attempt to prove himself worthy of a chance under Mourinho.

The England U-21 international is ready to use pre-season training next month as a platform to win a spot in Mou’s plans, even though he has just one year remaining on his current contract.

Although inexperienced, Bamford may have a chance at Chelsea, with the exit of Didier Drogba having left the club with only Loic Remy as back-up to Diego Costa.
