Home England Championship Chelsea to loan star to Southampton

Chelsea to loan star to Southampton


Patrick Bamford could be set for spell in Premier League

Chelsea are reportedly ready to send Patrick Bamford out on loan at Southampton for the 2015/2016 season in order for him to experience the Premier League.

The 21-year-old has spent several loan spells away from Stamford Bridge but has developed into a top prospect due to his impressive goal scoring records.

Bamford was sent to League One MK Dons for his first loan-spell away from West London, before then joining Derby County in the Championship and now Middlesbrough in the Championship.

Impressive Scoring Record

The England U-21 international has scored 19 goals in all competitions for Boro and could help the club seal promotion back to the Premier League.

If the Championship side do get promoted, a loan move back to the Riverside Stadium could occur, but with promotion not guaranteed yet, Jose Mourinho is reportedly planning a loan-deal with a Premier League outfit.

Premier League Interest

According to reports, Southampton are the team interested in bringing Bamford in for a season and Mourinho is keen to get the deal over the line.

If the move does go through, it will be Bamford’s first experience of top-flight football and that’s what Mourinho wants so that he can judge the striker’s potential against the very best.
