Derby County boss and former Chelsea midfielder, Frank Lampard has been linked with taking over at Stamford Bridge.

But the Blues are yet to make contact with Derby, according to reports from England.

The Championship club are keen to extend Lampard’s deal – which has two years left – and have opened talks with the 40-year-old.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are unable to sign any players during this break as a two-window transfer ban had been handed them by world governing body, Fifa.
