Chelsea deny that they are locked in contract talks with England midfielder Frank Lampard.

Chelsea have moved to deny reports that the club have opened contract talks with England midfielder Frank Lampard.

The club's chief executive Ron Gourlay appeared to suggest that the 34-year-old was in discussions with the Blues on Tuesday.

However, according to Sky Sports News, the club's hierarchy have insisted that Gourlay was "misquoted" at a press conference in Bangkok.

Lampard needs three more goals to draw level with Bobby Tambling's record of 202 strikes for the club.
