Chelsea’s Frank Lampard expects to be a free agent in the summer
• Nothing has been said or planned for new deal, says player
• ‘I feel I have two or three years left at the top level’
Frank Lampard expects to end his 12-year association with Chelsea next summer. The England midfielder is approaching the final six months of his contract with the European champions and no negotiations are scheduled to discuss an extension.
Lampard, who has appeared as a substitute in the wins over Sunderland and Monterrey after a six-week absence with a calf injury, believes he can play for two or three more years at the top level and is eager for regular involvement, though it appears that will have to be at another club.
