Bamford appears to be a Chelsea striker only by name, having been loaned out to several clubs during his career.
His last loan spell - a move to Crystal Palace - far from worked out. And, taking that into account, Norwich City could be argued to be taking a risk on the youngster.
That said, Bamford has been prolific in the Championship and can argue he hasn't been given enough chances by Chelsea or Palace.
Celtic's Cole, meanwhile, has urged Bamford to show everyone what he's made of at Norwich.
Good luck to @Patrick_Bamford on his new conquest with Norwich City. Show em what your made of pal— Carlton Cole (@CarltonCole1) January 30, 2016
Norwich are only two points above the relegation zone and a few goals from Bamford would be very handy indeed.
Intriguingly, though, Chelsea are only five points above the Canaries after a poor season so far...
