The England international’s current contract at Stamford Bridge has now expired and the Blues have included Lampard’s name on a list of players they have now allowed to be released, indicating that the 35-year-old will not be handed a new 12-month rolling deal by the club.

And while the Blues have so far refused to comment on this story, the writing now very much appears to be on the wall as far as Lampard’s future in the capital is concerned.

Lampard joined Chelsea from London rivals West Ham United in June 2001 for a fee of £11m and in the intervening 11-year period the midfielder has gone on to become the Blues’ record goalscorer with an incredible 211 strikes in his 648 appearances in all competitions for the club.

However, in the previous campaign Lampard only managed to register six goals and three assists in total in his 26 Premier League appearances.
