Chelsea are set to make a £8.5 million profit as Patrick Bamford moves closer to securing a permanent switch to Middlsebrough in a deal which could be worth up to £10 million, according to various reports.

Bamford enjoyed a more successful spell at Boro during the 2014-15 season, scoring 17 goals in 38 Championship outings.
