Another Championship club interested in Chelsea's young goal machine

Wolves boss Kenny Jackett has confirmed he enquired about Patrick Bamford.

It seems Patrick Bamford is a wanted man.

And it makes sense considering the Chelsea striker scored 25 goals last season.

During loan spells at both Milton Keynes Dons and Derby County, the 20-year-old enjoyed a prolific campaign throughout the Football League.

Now, lower-league clubs want to take Bamford on loan once again, with Middlesbrough touted as favourites to sign the Blues forward.

However, Wolves boss Kenny Jackett has admitted that he threw his hat into the ring earlier this summer with regards to Bamford's availability.

“We’ve enquired about him in the past but I don’t know currently what’s happening with him and where he’s going," Jackett told the Express and Star.

“I don’t know what his options are and where he stands in Chelsea’s pecking order. At one stage it seemed he was quite high, but is he falling down it now?

“We’re not necessarily in regular touch with regard to where he’s going next, if he goes anywhere.”

Wolves are fourth in the Championship after four games - just a point off first-placed Nottingham Forest.

Jackett's side have also signed Bamford's former team-mate George Saville from Chelsea.
