Lampard admits to doubts over Chelsea future

Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has admitted he does not know what his long-term future holds in store, the London Evening Standard has reported, with the England international keen to extend his contract at Stamford Bridge but, as yet, negotiations have remained at that early stage.

Lampard has entered the final year of his current deal and a conversation over a new one was held earlier this summer, but that initial meeting has not been followed up by a firm offer. The 34-year-old made no effort to hide the fact that he would like to end his career at Chelsea but is waiting for the club to make their position clear.

At the minute I’m just playing. I’d like to sit down and speak with them. But at the minute I’m playing and it’s up to the club to do that,” Lampard said, adding: “I would like to end my career there. I feel I can play at the top level for a good few more years, but it’s whether the club feels the same.

Lampard has been at Chelsea since 2001, moving from West Ham United to play under Claudio Ranieri. In more than a decade at the club Lampard – who revealed the first half of last season under Andre Villas-Boas was his worst at the club – has made more than 550 appearances, scoring almost 200 goals.
