Former star is not surprised that didn’t have his head turned by links with in the summer transfer window.

The England international has been in excellent form for for some time, enjoying a fine season last term and opening his account already this term.

Bamford was briefly linked with Spurs as a potential replacement for Harry Kane amid continued links with Manchester City.

Is Bamford good enough for a top six club?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Kane did not end up moving to City, as they failed to match Spurs’ asking price and chairman Daniel stood firm over his star man.

Bamford netted 17 goals last term as secured a comfortable top-10 finish.

He has subsequently been rewarded with a call-up to Gareth Southgate’s and made his debut last weekend in the 4-0 win over Andorra.

Speaking exclusively to This Is Futbol, Norris has hailed Bamford’s character after links with the north London club.

He said: “He doesn’t seem that type of character. He seems pretty laid back, he doesn’t let too much affect him either way. He’s had the tough times and just carried on, he’s had some better times and doesn’t seem to get too excited by it.

“He’s got his head screwed on, he’s level headed, he’s happy to be playing and enjoying his football. He could have potentially had his head turned but he’s at a big club, they’re doing well, he’s doing well, so it makes sense.”
