Aitor Karanka wants Patrick Bamford at Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough coach Aitor Karanka reveals that he wants Chelsea youngster Patrick Bamford to join his team on loan for the coming season.

Middlesbrough coach Aitor Karanka has insisted that he wants Chelsea youngster Patrick Bamford to join the club on loan.

The 20-year-old goalscorer enjoyed successful spells at MK Dons and Derby County last season, but has now returned to Chelsea for the new campaign.

"I hope he can be [a Boro player] but it's not in my hands. It's with him," said Karanka via the club's official YouTube channel.

"He can be a very good player for us because we just have Kike as striker but, at the moment, he's not my player."

Despite an agreement not being reached, the clubs have reportedly already held talks about the youngster's plans for this season.
