Chelsea determined to keep Lampard away from Mourinho

Chelsea are determined to hold onto midfielder Frank Lampard.

The Daily Mail says Jose Mourinho is close to being confirmed as Inter Milan coach - with his unveiling expected early next week - and a move for Lampard as well as striker Didier Drogba is considered imminent.

Chelsea would be happy to let Drogba move to either Inter or AC Milan, who have also expressed an interest, but they want to keep Lampard and new contract talks with the England midfielder are expected to start next week.
