Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are unsure of the club’s intentions after the London Evening Standard explained that they will only allow Patrick Bamford to leave for a club in the Premier League as part of a loan deal.
There has been a lot of concern surrounding the future of Bamford, who has scored an impressive 17 goals this season at Middlesbrough.
The choice is to either nurture him into the first team squad at Stamford Bridge or loan him out to a club in the Premier League to get more experience and game time.
But some other people were concerned that people would bid for his services, but this is not the case as they are keen to keep him as a Chelsea player.
Although some Blues fans here in the Transfer Tavern fear that if he is loaned out, he will never get an opportunity with the first team!
The 21-year-old is already wanted by Southampton, Crystal Palace, Everton and Aston Villa.
