Stamford Bridge striker defends his controversial transfer decision

Published Add your comment

On-loan Chelsea striker Patrick Bamford has revealed the real reason he quit Nottingham Forest to move to Stamford Bridge, stating his desire to play for a top Premier League club as the motivation behind his 2012 transfer. The 21-year-old talisman's departure from the City Ground was shrouded in controversy having been with them since the age of eight, jumping ship at the earliest opportunity after making just two senior appearances. However, the recently crowned Championship Player of the Year has defended his decision to join the Blues, stating it had nothing to do with money. Despite the fact he's yet to make a single first-team appearance for Chelsea, Bamford remains hopeful of making a breakthrough in Jose Mourinho's side in the future. His impressive form for promotion-chasing Middlesbrough has further enhanced his reputation, and he could finally achieve his ambition of playing in the English top-flight next term.
