The Blues board made it clear that Lampard would not be offered a new deal at the club this season and would be available to leave Stamford Bridge on a free in the summer.
However recent impressive performances and a unselfish attitude has changed the hierarchy’s opinion on the England midfield man and a new one year contract is set to be put on the table in the next few weeks.
The 34-year-old has been at Stamford Bridge for 12 years now after his £11million move from West Ham in 2001.
The Blues vice-captain has his sights set on becoming Chelsea’s record goalscorer this season but he may now have another year to complete the feat.
The Chelsea fans were critical of the board for not offering one of their all-time legends a new contract and treating him with no dignity or humility, but it now appears that he still may be playing in the Premier League for the Blues next season.
