MK Dons loanee Patrick Bamford is set to join Championship promotion chasers Derby County on loan until the end of the season.

The Dons were hoping to keep the striker, who has bagged 16 goals for Karl Robinson's side so far during this campaign, but his parent club Chelsea wanted him to try his luck at a higher level.

Several Championship clubs were linked with a move for the talented 20-year-old, but it's the Rams who have won the race for his signature.

Bamford's loan deal at Stadium MK expires on Sunday.
