I’m not closing the door on Chelsea – Bamford

Joe Williams

New Middlesbrough signing Patrick Bamford is leaving his options open by refusing to “close the door” on a future return to Chelsea.

Bamford completed a £10million move to Boro this week after several loan moves had failed to convince the Blues management team that he was good enough for a place in the first team.

However, the 23-year-old striker still thinks there is a possibility that he could return to Stamford Bridge in the future if he plays well enough.

“I was so happy to come back here to Middlesbrough,” he told Talksport.

“But I’m not closing the door on Chelsea. You never know what will happen in the future, depending on how well I do.”
