There is brilliant news for Blues fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern as it has been claimed by BBC Sport that Frank Lampard has penned a new deal at Chelsea.
The midfielder nearly scored a wonder long range goal during the Europa League final and now it seems that Chelsea are finally recognising the fact that he is not only their all-time top scorer but a living legend at the club.
The player himself made no secret of his desire to stay at the club he has come to love with all his heart and after more than a decade there it is no surprise.
203 goals and counting is the record Lamps will now be looking to add to and given the 12-month extension and rumoured return of his favourite manager, Jose Mourinho, that number looks set to rise. Lampard joins fellow England international Ashley Cole with his one-year extension that takes him until the age of 35 and it seems that skipper John Terry will follow suit soon.
Rafael Benitez may not hold Lampard in the esteem that Mourinho and the rest of us do, but the player is not only Chelsea’s all-time top goalscorer, he has now won every trophy possible at club level.
Will Mourinho start Lampard at Stamford Bridge next term or continue to use him sparingly? Let us know your thoughts below.
