The 22-year-old Chelsea striker has joined Norwich on loan - and some Villa fans aren't happy...

Chelsea will be glad to have found another club for the youngster, while the Canaries need a forward.
But there certainly wasn't much glee from Aston Villa fans as news broke of another striker passing them by.
Indeed, Villa are in a far worse position than Norwich yet, at the same time, signing Bamford could have given them a big boost for the Championship.
A successful goalscoring spell at Aston Villa for the Chelsea forward could have persuaded him to stay at Villa Park next season in the second tier. All the while, the risk factor would be absolutely minimal for Villa.
The phrase 'sleepwalking towards relegation' has been used by fans and it's an apt one.
Bamford's spell at Crystal Palace means he isn't guaranteed goals, of course. But Norwich fans would rather have the 22-year-old than not. It seems a lot of Aston Villa supporters feel the same way on Twitter...
Missed out on Bamford & Rhodes - They would of been prolific & potentially formidable next season... Oh well..We have Gustede & Gabby #Avfc— Beard Of The Match (@BeardOfTheMatch) January 30, 2016
Villa scouts looking for championship players and we don't sign Bamford. Good scouts good board good manager #Avfc— Oli (@astonvilla05) January 30, 2016
