Impressive striker confirms Chelsea transfer deal is done and dusted!

Patrick Bamford has revealed Crystal Palace were his first choice for a loan move from Chelsea.

The 21-year-old told Palace’s official website he wanted to stay nearer to the capital after spending last season in Middlesbrough.

As quoted on the Sky Sports website, he said: “I was quite keen to stay close to London this time and Palace were actually my first choice, but I didn’t realise they were keen to start with.

“Then, when I met with the manager, he put forward his plans and it was an easy decision.” © 2017 Frontier Theme
