UNHAPPY BAMFORD ENDS LOAN SPELL AT PALACE

patrick-bamford

Frustrated Chelsea striker Patrick Bamford has decided to end a season-long loan

spell at Crystal Palace prematurely after “tearing his hair out” over a lack of first-

team opportunities at the Selhurst Park club.

Bamford shone in another loan spell at Middlesbrough last season, scoring 17 league

goals for the Championship team, but has yet to start a Premier League match this

term.

“This was my last game for Palace,” he was quoted as saying by the Daily Mail

newspaper after making his sixth league appearance for the club as a substitute in

Monday’s 0-0 draw at home to Swansea City.

England under-21 international Bamford has never played a first-team game for

Chelsea but signed a three-year contract with the Stamford Bridge club six months

ago.

He also had a successful six-month loan spell at Championship club Derby County in

2014, scoring eight goals in 14 league starts.
