Sheffield Wednesday and Queens Park Rangers target Patrick Bamford could be spending the rest of the season at parent club Chelsea, putting an end to hopes of signing him on loan according to The Daily Mail.
Both clubs have been linked with the striker this week after his loan at Premier League side Crystal Palace was ended early. However now it looks as if Bamford won’t be loaned out at all, and instead will be given a chance to prove himself in the Chelsea first team.
Is it understood that new Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink has spoken to his former coach Ray Wilkins about Bamford, with Wilkins being full of praise for the striker.
This will be a blow for Queens Park Rangers and Sheffield Wednesday, with both clubs understood to be in the market for a striker this month. Bamford would have been a good addition to any Championship squad, with the player scoring 19 goals whilst on loan at Middlesbrough last season.
