Frank Lampard not going anywhere

Chelsea's Frank LampardChelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has confirmed that he will not be leaving the club this summer.

The veteran midfielder has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge as a raft of younger midfielders have joined the west London outfit this summer.

Despite a move to the MLS being touted, Lampard has confirmed that he wants to end his career with Chelsea.

“I’m ready to sit down and talk to Chelsea whenever they want to,” The Daily Mail report the England international as saying.

“I’ve had a great time playing for Chelsea and I hope I can prolong it. In an ideal world I’d finish here and keep giving what I have given over the past ten years.

“Though, I wouldn’t want to fade away as a player and be here without performing or producing. I want to always be at a level I know I can play at and give a lot when I play.

“I certainly feel I’ve got more than a year left in me. I feel I’ve got a few more years in terms of top football. I’m fit enough and fresh enough.

“My legs are fine and with experience you can bring something else to the team in terms of off the pitch, helping the young players coming through.

“I’d love to do that. Chelsea will always be my club regardless of what happens now in terms of my playing days,” he concluded.
