I have never heard of John Percy before but he's with an actual news agency, so there's some credibility in there despite this news also being reported by the Daily Star. Anyway, I really don't know too much about Bamford besides from the fact that he has seven goals and three assists in his last two FA Youth Cup matches, which are numbers so odd it's difficult to believe them (but there are match reports for both!). He's an 18-year-old striker who is is apparently being chased by pretty much everyone, so if we could sign him that would be pretty neat. I'm going to stop talking now.
