DONE DEAL! Norwich sign Patrick Bamford on loan from Chelsea

Chelsea striker Patrick Bamford has joined Norwich on loan for the rest of the season.

The 22-year-old spent the first half of the campaign on loan at Crystal Palace but it ended in controversy when he said his spell there had been “terrible”, a comment he later retracted with an apology.

Bamford returned to Chelsea at the end of December and the England Under-21 international now moves to Norwich.

After completing the deal, the forward told the club’s official website: “I’m really happy to be here, and the sooner I’m able to get involved the better. 

“That’s what I want to do personally, but it’s also about helping Norwich to get the points required to stay in the league.” 

City boss Alex Neil added: “Patrick is a player who excelled last season and we are pleased to have the opportunity to bring him in. 

“He’s a young forward determined to make his way in the game, and adds competition for us at the top end of the pitch.”

City will be hoping Bamford can fire them to Premier League safety, a season after netting 19 goals in 44 appearances while on loan at Middlesbrough.
