Lampard moving towards Chelsea exit

Frank Lampard has admitted he has not held talks with Chelsea over a new contract, as the England midfielder moves closer to departing the club for which he has played for more than a decade, the Daily Mirror has reported.

Lampard’s contract expires in the summer and the 34-year-old was named by interim manager Rafael Benitez as a player who would not be offered fresh terms, along with 31-year-old Ashley Cole. Lampard, who moved to Chelsea 11 years ago from West Ham United, has confirmed that there have been no discussions with the club over extending his stay at Stamford Bridge.

Talks about one-year extension, two-year extension don't exist - because at the minute nothing has been said and as far as I know nothing is planned,” Lampard said. “I'm a Chelsea player as simple as that. I've had a great, great time here. But maybe things don't last forever. Although I want it to last forever you have to be big enough to know what it is.

Lampard however insisted that he believes he can still play in the Premier League, and will be able to do so for another “two or three years,” despite being linked with lucrative moves to either China or the United States. A possible route to remaining in the top flight of English football could be found at Arsenal, the Mirror added, who were recently linked with a surprise move for the veteran.

The Chelsea vice-captain has won the Premier League title three times, the FA Cup four times, the League Cup twice and the Champions League once in his decade-plus with Chelsea, and has become one of the club’s all-time top scorers despite his midfield berth.
