Newcastle United fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to speculation linking the club with a move for Chelsea striker Patrick Bamford in the summer transfer window.

According to a recent report in The Chronicle, Newcastle are considering making a move for Bamford this summer.

The 22-year-old is a promising young forward who has proved himself in the Championship. The youngster played on loan for Middlesbrough from Chelsea during the 2014-15 season.

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

The England Under-21 international, though, had struggled to adapt to the Premier League.

The young forward’s loan spells at Crystal Palace and Norwich City during the 2015-16 campaign were far from impressive.

Bamford struggled for playing time at both Palace and Norwich, who got relegated from the Premier League and will play in the Championship next season.
