China's Guizhou Renhe have confirmed talks with Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard.

Chelsea boss Roberto di Matteo denied the speculation after yesterday's draw with Liverpool.

But deputy board chairman Yang Xiayou said: "Yes, we are in contact with Lampard but so far nothing has been settled."

Chairman Dai Yongge was quoted in a Chinese newspaper as saying Lampard would join Renhe as captain in January, ahead of the season starting in March.
