Sky Bet Championship: Middlesbrough loanee Patrick Bamford hopes to extend stay on Teesside

Chelsea forward Patrick Bamford is hoping to extend his loan spell at Middlesbrough.

The England Under-21 international has scored five times in 13 appearances for the Teessiders, three of them in his last four games, and is keen for Jose Mourinho to agree to manager Aitor Karanka's request to keep him.

Bamford told the Evening Gazette: "At the moment, I'm only here until the New Year, but I'm keen to stay. I like it here, I like the manager.

"He believes in me, which is important, so I don't think there's any reason for me to go back."

Bamford has been used in a variety of positions during his spell at Boro to date, playing as a lone frontman, off a central striker or in a wide position, and he insists he has not been fazed by the challenge.

He said: "I've played all along the frontline, but I don't mind that. I've played all those roles so far in my career and I'm comfortable in all of them."
