Chelsea agree deal for attacking midfielder - player has already agreed personal terms and passed a medical


The transfer of forward Patrick Bamford from Chelsea to Burnley is now official, the club has announced.

The 22-year-old will spend the remainder of the season at Turf Moor.

He spent the last five seasons on loan at Milton Keynes Dons, Derby County, Middlesbrough, Crystal Palace and Norwich City.

The youngster says he is ready to work hard in order to secure a regular place in Sean Dyche's squad.

"I had heard in the past three seasons that Sean [Dyche] was interested, but for one reason or another it hadn't materialised," he is quoted as saying by the Lancashire Telegraph.

"We spoke again in this window and after a chat everything was positive. It was just about getting it done in the end.

"One of the things the gaffer said to me is that he has done well with strikers in the past. He said he'd bring the best out of me and was straightforward with me.

"He told me how it was and it's refreshing to have that. Sometimes in managers you can get a blurred pathway, so it was nice to hear the truth then you know where you stand and it's easier to move on from there.

"I know I have to work hard and I'm fully prepared to do that to try and get in that team.

"It's up to me to take that chance when it comes. The Premier League is a long, hard season and there will be chances. It's up to me then."
