New Chelsea chief Cech: Lampard? There's several candidates

"Derby County Football Club can confirm that they have granted permission for Chelsea Football Club to speak to Frank Lampard about the vacant managerial position at Stamford Bridge", Derby said in a statement.

The 41-year-old is adored by the Chelsea faithful for his record-breaking goalscoring exploits during a trophy-laden 13 years in West London. They expect talks to conclude on Monday or Tuesday.

Chelsea are planning to announce Frank Lampard as Maurizio Sarri's successor at Stamford Bridge in time for the start of pre-season next week.

Chelsea's recently-appointed technical and performance adviser, Petr Cech, has revealed the club are not just looking at Lampard, but also exploring other potential candidates. "Frank is one of them".

Derby are said to want a manger to embrace their Academy structure and with Memphis Depay having been among the names Cocu promoted to the first team from the youth set-up at PSV, he could be an attractive candidate in that regard, too.

It now appears a deal could be completed this week as Derby "excuse" Lampard from pre-season duties in order to finish talks with Chelsea. "He will have to look at the players and decide who will go to Japan", he told Czech News Agency.
