Forest confirm Chelsea bid for Bamford

Chelsea have made a £1.5 million bid for Nottingham Forest striker Patrick Bamford, according to Forest boss Steve Cotterill.

Bamford, 18, has made just two substitute appearances during his short career at the City Ground, but has reportedly attracted attention from a number of clubs.

Cotterill is set to discuss the bid with his chairman as he does not expect Bamford to sign a new deal with the east midlands club.

"There has been a bid for him from Chelsea, it is for £1.5million,'' Cotterill told the Nottingham Evening Post.

"The problem we have is that Patrick has been offered a couple of contracts now and I am not sure he will sign a new contract at Nottingham Forest.

"We are going to have a meeting to decide where that goes. What materialises, we will find out shortly.''
