Middlesbrough have signed Chelsea striker Patrick Bamford on a season-long loan deal.

Bamford has trained with Boro this week and is expected to be in their matchday squad for Saturday’s home game against Reading in the Championship.

The 20-year-old has had previous loan spells with Milton Keynes Dons and Derby County and has England international appearances at three age levels to his name.

“Everyone knows that Patrick is a very good player with a bright future in the game,” said Boro boss Aitor Karanka.

"He scored a lot of goals during his previous loan spells and will be a good addition to our squad.

"I first enquired about trying to bring Patrick to Middlesbrough last December so I am delighted that everything has now been agreed.

"I’m looking forward to working with him."

Bamford joins Chelsea club mate Kenneth Omeruo, who is also on a season-long loan, at the Riverside and is the club’s second season-long signing this week, joining Tottenham youngster Ryan Fredericks.
