Daily Star reveals that Patrick Bamford could be set for a loan spell at Stoke City in a swap for Asmir Begovic.

According to the latest information, Chelsea’s young striker Patrick Bamford may join Stoke City on season-long deal in a swap for the Potters goalkeeper, Asmir Begovic.

Bamford spent his last season on a loan at Middlesbrough where he impressed scoring 17 goals in 39 appearances. The 21-year-old player was linked with a move to Newcastle but as we informed some time ago he has turned down a loan move to the Magpies.

Due to the fact that Chelsea have recently signed Radamel Falcao, Bamford may have problems with the regular game in the team. That is why another loan may be the only reasonable solution for footballer.

Various reports claims that Begovic transfer to Chelsea is only a matter of days. So it seems that Patrick Bamford may be used as a bargaining chip.
