Lampard keen to extend Chelsea stay
Tuesday 22 November 2011
Frank Lampard has insisted there is no chance of him quitting Chelsea and revealed he wants to extend his contract at Stamford Bridge.
England midfielder Lampard has been linked with a move to Los Angeles Galaxy as a big-name replacement for David Beckham.
The 33-year-old has less than two years left on his existing Chelsea deal and his future looked less than certain earlier this season when he was rotated in and out of the side.
But he has regained his status as a virtual ever-present in recent weeks and hopes to do enough to earn a new deal.
"As it stands, I have this season and next season and I would love to extend that," he said in the Evening Standard.
"As long as the club want me, I will be here.
"Whatever anyone says about me going anywhere else, I will be here, without a doubt."
