Everton: Dean Jones makes Frank Lampard contract claim

Everton: Dean Jones makes Frank Lampard contract claim -Everton News

Everton have the option of terminating Frank Lampard’s contract with the club at the end of the season, claims insider Dean Jones.

The Lowdown: Lampard’s struggle

Since arriving at Goodison Park, the new Toffees boss has seriously struggled in turning the Blues’ season around.

In his first seven league games in charge, Everton won twice and lost five times, causing the side to drop to an even further relegation-threatened 17th place.

Most recently, Lampard’s side were destroyed 4-0 by Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in the FA Cup, denying them a place in the semi-finals.

This has of course raised questions over the former Chelsea man’s future with the Merseyside club, with plenty of media outlets left debating his merit in the aftermath.

The Latest: Jones’ reveal

Jones has revealed that Everton have the option of parting ways with Lampard at the end of the season, without having to go through the compensation process.

Speaking with GiveMeSport, he claimed:

“From what I’m told, Everton do have the option to part ways with Lampard at the end of the season.

“I think it’s only a one-way thing, so it doesn’t count for Lampard too, as far as I understand it.”

The Verdict: Survive or go

The Toffees sit three points ahead of 18th place Watford, having played two less games than the Hornets. However, 19th place Burnley have also played the same number of matches as the Blues, and sitting just four points behind, Everton’s Premier League status is anything but guaranteed.

One would have to think that Lampard will be sacked if he cannot guide the side clear of the bottom three come the end of the campaign, and fans should be relieved they won’t have to shell out a big compensation fee given the financial struggles at the club, allowing them to rebuild once and for all from the ground up with a clean slate.

Even if the former England international keeps his side up, the board at Everton could decide to part ways in the summer, given the convenience of this clause in his contract.
