Chelsea striker Patrick Bamford returned to London after ending his loan spell at Burnley.
The Clarets announced it with a tweet:
“Patrick Bamford has ended his loan spell with Burnley after being recalled by parent club Chelsea”.
The 23-year-old failed to break into Sean Dyche‘s first team plans during his time at Turf Moor founding himself behind Sam Vokes and Andre Gray in the pecking order.
The Blues are likely to attempt to find a new club for the English forward, with Middlesbrough a possible destination.
Bamford was already loaned out to the Teesside club in the 2014-2015 season during which time he scored 17 goals but in his following loan spells he always failed to reach expectations.
