The 18-year-old forward has played just 12 minutes of first-team football, making two appearances from the Forest bench this season, but after netting nine goals in the club's last two academy matches, Bamford's potential is there for all to see.
The striker netted four goals in last week's 5-1 FA Youth Cup victory over Southampton at St Mary's, reportedly alerting the attention of a number of Barclays Premier League suitors.
Forest boss Steve Cotterill will be keen to keep Bamford at the City Ground, and will stress that his development would be better served by gaining further experience in the Npower Championship, in and around the first-team picture.
