Norwich City have confirmed the signing of Chelsea striker Patrick Bamford on loan until the end of the season.

The move follows intense speculation in recent days linking the 22-year-old with a move to Carrow Road.

Canaries boss Alex Neil told the club's official website: After further bolstering his attacking options following the recent signing of Steven Naismith, City boss Alex Neil added: 'Patrick is a player who excelled last season and we are pleased to have the opportunity to bring him in.

'He's a young forward determined to make his way in the game, and adds competition for us at the top end of the pitch.'

Bamford had a temporary spell with Crystal Palace this season, where he made six Barclays Premier League appearances.
