Chelsea and captain John Terry have been urged by Frank Lampard to come to an agreement over a new deal extension at the club.
The 34-year-old midfielder ended ongoing speculation about his future recently by agreeing a new one-year deal at Stamford Bridge in the same week in which he surpassed Bobby Tambling as the club’s record goalscorer and helped the Blues lift the Europa League trophy.
Lampard is now looking for his 32-year-old team-mate Terry to get his long-term future sorted as former boss Jose Mourinho is poised to return as coach this summer.
Terry struggled for fitness this past season while he was never a first choice in interim coach Rafael Benitez’s central defensive plans. But Lampard insists he is an integral part of the club and he wants him to stay beyond the end of next season when his current deal expires.
Lampard told The Sun: “I know JT will want to stay, he’s said he’d love to stay at Chelsea. He feels the same as me.
“Why play anywhere else when you love the club you’re at? JT’s the captain of the club and does a brilliant job.
“At the start of next season, I think that’s when the club will take a view on it. I know what my view would be.”
