Agent Kutner slams Lampard-to-Inter talk

Frank Lampard's agent has rubbished reports the Chelsea midfielder has agreed to join Inter Milan after tomorrow night's Champions League final.

Reports in Italy claim the England international, 29, is ready to quit Stamford Bridge this summer rather than extend his contract, which expires in 2009.

But agent Steve Kutner insisted there was 'no truth' in the rumours, saying: 'I don't know why Inter Milan would think this. Nobody has talked to me and I am good friends with the owner, Massimo Moratti.

'I took Paul Ince there, I took Patrick Vieira there - if there was something on, I am sure I would know.

'The situation is that Frank has got a massive match on Wednesday, after which he needs to spend time with his family, because he has not had a real opportunity to do that since his mother died.

'He needs to get away and sort out his personal life and when he has done that we will sit down and talk about his future in football.

'After that, we will talk to Chelsea and that is as far as we have got - there is nothing in the pipeline and I don't know why this has surfaced now.'

Lampard has been in contract negotiations with Chelsea for almost the whole season without the parties reaching agreement.
