Chelsea star Bamford makes the cut - Chalobah and Omeruo miss out

Derby County loan star, Patrick Bamford, is the only player from Chelsea to make FourFourTwo's top 50 players from the Football League list. As Blackburn Rovers and Middlesbrough stars miss-out.

Derby County's Patrick Bamford was the only Chelsea loan player in the Football League to make FourFourTwo magazine's coveted top 50 players in the Football League list.

Bamford was named as the 15th best player, which is a stunning achievement for the young striker who spent the majority of it in League One.

He has been in outstanding goalscoring form this season, netting a staggering 21-goals overall, 14 whilst in Milton Keynes and seven at Derby.

Remarks have been made about other parts of his game which he needs to improve on, if he is to become a first-team player at Chelsea in the future.

Despite jubilation for Bamford, there was no place for Blackburn Rovers loan star Todd Kane, or for former Nottingham Forest, now Middlesbrough midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah, or his teammate at 'Boro Kenneth Omeruo.

Todd Kane, in truth, has been underwhelming. Although the right-back has played in the majority of Blackburn's games this season, I don't think Rovers' fans will be too disappointed to see him depart back to Stamford Bridge in the summer.

It has been a similar story for the former Nottingham Forest, now Middlesbrough midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah. He has picked up hugely since moving to the Riverside, however, his early form at the City Ground left a grey cloud over his head. A shame for a player who showed so much promise whilst on-loan at Watford last season.

Hugely-talented Nigerian centre-back Kenneth Omeruo has also missed out, which is largely due to the amount of games he has played in. Since he has been at the club, he has been an outstanding figure for 'Boro, and given a full-season in the Championship, I believe he would be well-within the top defender picks.
