Lampard hopeful over new deal

Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has revealed that he might be offered a new deal with the club in the coming weeks

Frank Lampard told ITV Sport "it looks good'' for his chances of a new contract at Chelsea as he celebrated Europa League success on Wednesday night.

The England midfielder, who last week became the club's record goalscorer with a brace against Aston Villa, added another trophy to his extensive haul with the club as they beat Benfica 2-1 in Amsterdam.

Lampard's contract expires this summer and speculation over his future at the club has been a constant backdrop this season.

But asked whether he will remain at Stamford Bridge next term, he said: "I really hope so.

"We're getting there, we haven't completely sat down on it but the club have been brilliant, it looks good.''

Lampard hit the crossbar moments before defender Branislav Ivanovic headed Chelsea's injury-time winner, with Fernando Torres' opener having been cancelled out by Oscar Cardozo's penalty.

Lampard said: "I was just waiting for it to dip a little bit but it doesn't matter, we're a group.

"No one deserves it more than Ivanovic, he's been fantastic.''
