Bamford is a talented young forward who has been a success in the Championship already. The England Under-21 international played on loan for Middlesbrough from Chelsea during the 2014-15 season.

The youngster had a great spell at the Riverside Stadium, as he scored 16 goals and created 28 chances in 40 Championship appearances for Boro.
