Carlton Cole reacts on Twitter to Patrick Bamford's Norwich move

Carlton Cole

The Celtic striker took to social media after the Chelsea forward's loan to the Canaries was confirmed.

Celtic striker Carlton Cole has wished Patrick Bamford luck on his 'new conquest' at Norwich City after the Canaries confirmed the loan signing of the 22-year-old Chelsea forward.

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.

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...
