Lampard keen to stay beyond current contract
Midfielder Frank Lampard may be nearing the end of his current Chelsea contract but that hasn't stopped him from saying he wants to stay at Stamford Bridge. The 33-year-old, who made his name at rival London side West Ham, has fewer than two years left on his existing Chelsea deal. And speculation he could replace David Beckham at LA Galaxy intensified when Lampard was rotated in and out of the Chelsea team earlier this season. But he has since become a regular under Portuguese boss Andre Villas-Boas and Lampard told the press: "As it stands, I have this season and next season and I would love to extend that. "As long as the club want me, I will be here. Whatever anyone says about me going anywhere else, I will be here, without a doubt."
