Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has confirmed goalkeeper Edouard Mendy is undergoing a Chelsea medical ahead of a transfer from Rennes.

Speaking to the press on Tuesday, Lampard said: “Mendy is having a medical as we speak. Subject to that being okay, then he will be a Chelsea player.”

The Blues have agreed a £22million deal with Ligue 1 side Rennes for the Senegalese goalkeeper, who is being brought in to provide competition for faltering first choice Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Meanwhile, Lampard revealed after the 2-0 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday that he would support Kepa following his nightmare start to the season.

Lampard said: “Kepa has to keep working and he has to have support around him, that’s very clear.

“Individually players need support, particularly from myself, and I give that to all the players.

“And now we’ve got to try to give him confidence, because that’s important.”
