Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas has again insisted he wants to keep hold of midfielder Frank Lampard.

Villas-Boas has already warned of a summer clearout should he remain in charge but he made it clear he did not want Lampard to be part of the cull.

Asked if he was 100% sure the 33-year-old would be at the club next season, he said: "I hope so.

"It does not depend on me. It depends on three parts - I want him, the person wants to stay and the club wants him."
