Frank Lampard: Chelsea not approached Derby County, says chairman Mel Morris

Frank Lampard: Chelsea not approached Derby County, says chairman Mel Morris

Frank Lampard is widely tipped as the successor to take over from Sarri in west London, while Petr Cech is linked with joining Chelsea in the role of a technical director.

40-year-old Lampard is the Stamford Bridge clubs all-time leading goalscorer, and is believed to be Chelsea's preferred candidate to take over from Maurizio Sarri, who left the club after one season in charge to take over as manager of Juventus.

However, Derby are determined to keep him at Pride Park after the former England midfielder led the Rams to the Championship play-off final in his first season at the helm.

The Times says he has rejected an approach from Derby about quitting Rangers to replace Frank Lampard.

In the meantime, we will continue to put our best foot forward to continue with our plans for the coming season.

He won every major honour in English football with Chelsea and also lifted the Champions League and Europa League. Both clubs have been contacted for comment by Press Association Sport. "It looks to me as though it will happen", Redknapp said on talkSPORT's Sports Breakfast.

Chelsea, meanwhile, are stepping up their search for Sarri's replacement, with club legend Frank Lampard said to be the favored appointment. He guided the team to Europa League success, third place in the Premier League and the Carabao Cup final.

Despite this, fans became frustrated at his regimented tactics and an apparent reluctance to play homegrown talents Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Callum Hudson-Odoi.

With current Chelsea goalkeeping coach Massimo Nenci on his way out, Lampard will push to bring Given with him to Chelsea, though Christophe Lollichon, the head of the club's goalkeeping department, is expected to remain, according to The Telegraph. A compensation package understood to be in excess of £5million was agreed with the Serie A champions.
