BAMFORD LOAN AGREED

Under-21 striker Patrick Bamford will this week join MK Dons on loan until January 5.

Bamford, 19, had two loan spells with the Buckinghamshire club last season, scoring four goals in eight appearances, with a total of 14 outings over the campaign.

Patrick joined Chelsea in January 2012 from Nottingham Forest, where he made two senior competitive appearances and impressed with his goalscoring form in the FA Youth Cup.
