Frank Lampard confirms he's in talks with Derby County

  Frank Lampard confirms he's in talks with Derby County Frank Lampard has confirmed that he is in talks to become the manager of Championship side Derby County. The Chelsea legend was asked about the rumours linking him with Derby whilst he was working as a pundit on BT Sport’s Champions League coverage and he said “There’s been interest from Derby. I’ve been speaking to them. I am ambitious and will carry on speaking to them when I get home.” Lampard had been working at Chelsea for a while as he completed his coaching badges, and there had been some talk of him perhaps taking some type of role with the club, but it seems like he has his heart set on being a manager. Derby are in the market for a new boss after Gary Rowett decided to leave and join Stoke City after the Rams were knocked out of the playoffs.

John Terry to join Aston Villa rivals? Frank Lampard has signed a three-year contract to become Derby County’s new manager. Frank Lampard says his new job as Derby County manager “won’t be easy” but that it presents a “huge opportunity” after joining the Rams.

New Derby County manager Frank Lampard could be rivalled by his former teammate and Glasgow Rangers counterpart Steven Gerrard for the signing of John Terry , according to bookmaker Sky Bet.

New Derby County manager Frank Lampard should make John Terry his first signing, according to Harry Redknapp.

Speaking on TalkSPORT, Redknapp urged Lampard to look no further than his former teammate following his release from Aston Villa.

“John Terry… what a signing he’d be! I would still take him for another year; he’s a great professional and great around the place. That would be an interesting one. Jody Morris [Lampard’s rumoured assistant] and John are big pals, so that fits nicely that one.”

Terry left Villa following their defeat in the play-off final against Fulham.

The former Chelsea defender has not hidden his intention to play on for another season, but that now looks like it will be away from Villa Park.

Lampard was unveiled as the new Derby County boss on Thursday morning and there has already been speculation that Terry could be in his sights.

The former Chelsea and England midfielder is believed to be working on a tight budget with the Rams, so a free transfer may be an appealing option for the club, despite Terry’s wage demands.

The 39-year-old said Terry, who is out of contract this week after narrowly failing to see Aston Villa promoted to the Premier League, had texted him earlier today. He said of Terry being out of contract: ‘I did notice that. I haven’t spoken to John. I got a message from him this morning. I think at the moment he is in Greece on holiday.
