Brentford manager Mark Warburton is keen to take Chelsea striker Patrick Bamford on-loan.

Bamford is on Chelsea’s pre-season European tour as Jose Mourinho ponders the 20-year-old’s future at Stamford Bridge.

Warburton told the Fulham Chronicle: “There’s a lot of good players out there. I’m sure Patrick Bamford is one of many players that many clubs will be looking act. He’s a class act.

“We want one or more to come in this week and maybe a couple of the young ones need to go out on loan as well. The players we bring in have to add value on and off the pitch. It’s not just their skills out there."
