Lampard to bow out of Chelsea

2013-01-04 09:01

London - Frank Lampard will definitely leave Chelsea at the end of the season, the England international's agent confirmed on Thursday, but he will not be tempted to see out his career in China.

The 34-year-old Lampard is into the final months of his contract with the European champions and a new deal has yet to be agreed.

"At the moment, Frank is only thinking of the present. As far as the future is concerned, the only thing that is certain is that his team will change at the end of the season," agent Steve Kutner told www.Cittaceleste.it.

"Frank wants to play for a great team, fight for important goals and win other trophies.

"A player of his calibre should continue playing at the highest level. Serie A could be more than just a possibility," added Kutner, who insisted that a move to China or Russia was not on the agenda.

Los Angeles Galaxy, Chinese Super League side Guizhou Renhe and Premier League strugglers QPR have all been recently linked with a move for Lampard.

    Sir Alex is proof that players like Lampard can continue play at the highest level ..Look at Giggs and Scholes ..Chelsea will regret letting Lampard go i still think he has a lot to offer ,even if it is as a sub. You cant replace experience !
