The saga seems to have been rumbling on for quite a while now, however, there have been fresh developments as of a few minutes ago. Derby County have given Lampard the first two days of pre-season off so that discussions can continue regarding a romantic return to Stamford Bridge.
Derby County has excused Frank Lampard from reporting back for pre-season training on Monday and Tuesday to allow his discussions regarding a potential move to Chelsea to be concluded as soon as possible.

Thanks for handling this professionally. We take the piss when it comes to signing a new player/manager. You shouldn’t have to go through this as well as it’s delaying getting your replacement in
