Frank Lampard is set to become the next Chelsea manager as the club and the Chelsea legend have agreed terms. The Blues have also agreed terms with Derby County over a compensation fee, as Derby admitted they’ve granted Lampard permission to speak to Chelsea and also revealed that he has been excused from the team’s pre-season.

Lampard is planning to bring a bulk of his backroom staff from Derby County to work with him at Stamford Bridge.

Lampard plans to make Jody Morris his assistant manager at Chelsea, as Morris was also his assistant at Derby County. Morris was a team-mate of Lampard’s during their playing days at Stamford Bridge, and the pair have a good relationship.

Morris has deep roots at Chelsea as he has previously managed the Chelsea youth teams and was very successful in the job, guiding the Under-18s to an unprecedented treble in 2016/17.

Chris Jones left Chelsea to join Lampard’s backroom staff as a first-team coach at Derby County and could as well return with him to Stamford Bridge.

Steve Rands is an experienced coach and was recruited by Lampard from Manchester City last summer. Lampard knew Rands while as a player for Manchester City and he made him head of performance analysis in his one-year spell as Derby County boss.

Rands spent seven years at City, and he worked under Roberto Mancini, Manuel Pellegrini and Pep Guardiola.

Darren Wassall is another name rumoured to be on Lampard’s shortlist and has been in charge of the Academy at Derby County since April 2009.

Derby club doctor Amit Pannu, formerly of Blackburn, head of fitness Steve Haines and medical man Robin Sadler make up the coaching crew Lampard is trying to bring to Stamford Bridge.

Newcastle legend and goalkeeping coach at Derby County Shay Given has reportedly turned down the opportunity to join Lampard to Chelsea this summer.

Reports claim that Given has snubbed the chance to follow Lampard to Stamford Bridge.

Given joined Lampard’s staff when he was appointed Rams boss last summer, but is set to stay put at Derby. This will be a huge blow for Lampard as he had hoped to bring Given to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
