Chelsea captain John Terry is adamant that Frank Lampard deserves to finish his playing career at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea captain John Terry has insisted that the club should stop Frank Lampard leaving Stamford Bridge by offering the veteran midfielder a new deal.

Lampard has been in fine form in recent months but has not been offered an extension to his Chelsea contract, which ends at the end of this season.

Terry thinks that Lampard's dedication to staying at the top level proves that he deserves to spend the rest of his playing career in West London.

He told The Sun: "Frank has so much more to give and he has been an inspiration to everyone at the club.

"He has got years ahead of him and we all hope they will be spent here at Chelsea. I am not even going to entertain the idea of him playing for another club.

"Even at his age, he is still the best trainer by a million miles."

The 34-year-old moved to within three goals of Bobby Tambling's all-time Chelsea scoring record last weekend by netting in a 4-0 win over Brentford in the FA Cup.

Chelsea's John Terry is congratulated by Branislav Ivanovic after scoring his team's fourth in the FA Cup 4th round replay against Brentford on February 17, 2013
