Middlesbrough have been linked with a loan move for Chelsea’s 23-year-old striker Patrick Bamford.
Middlesbrough manager Aitor Karanka has now confirmed he wants Bamford to return to Middlesbrough.
Bamford spent the 2014/15 season on loan at Middlesbrough, scoring 17 goals in 39 Championship games.
“I’ve always said that, when Patrick left, I told him that the door is always open to him,” Karanka said.
“So let’s see what happens.”
