Chelsea talent Patrick Bamford congratulates former club MK Dons on promotion

The Middlesbrough loanee spent two spells on loan at MK Dons in the past.

The MK Dons have been promoted to the Championship after a fantastic recent run of form. The club have won nine of their last ten games and have leapfrogged Preston North End in the promotion chase.

It has been a long time coming for Milton Keynes. The club have flirted with promotion in recent years but never managed to make it to the second-tier, that is now no longer the case.

One man very pleased to hear of the news was Chelsea youngster Patrick Bamford.

The striker, who has scored 19 goals in 42 games for his loan club Middlesbrough this term, spent time at MK Dons on loan last season. He scored 21 times in 42 appearances in two separate spells at the club and was clearly pleased to see his former team finally make it to the Championship:

Next season he might just face off against them. Despite his good form away from Chelsea he is far from assured of a place in the Chelsea first-team next season with the likes of Diego Costa and Loic Remy for company.
