Chelsea intend to farm out Patrick Bamford on-loan again next season.
The People says the 20-year-old has impressed at Derby County where he has netted five goals since joining Steve McClaren’s side during the January transfer window.
The Blues have been sending spies to monitor the progress of the young forward during his time out on loan at the iPro Stadium.
And while they have made favourable reference to the manner in which the striker has adapted to league football after a spell with MK Dons earlier this season, it appears he is not yet considered sufficiently robust to cope with the demands of a top-four Premier League team.
