Chelsea management will spend this month considering new contracts for their veteran players.

The Daily Mail says Chelsea will take decisions over the future of John Terry and Frank Lampard over coming weeks as well as Ashley Cole.

It is understood Cole could trigger another year option if he plays a set amount of games but that seems unlikely with manager Jose Mourinho's current team selection.

Terry and Lampard are expected to be offered one-year options but Cole is ready to leave.
