Image rights are proving the sticking point over new contract talks between Chelsea and Frank Lampard and John Terry.

The Sunday Mirror says the lack of progress in agreeing new deals with the England superstars lies in the players' insistence that they retain their image rights, which are worth millions of pounds to them.

Lampard and Terry want pay parity with last summer's expensive imports, Michael Ballack and Andriy Shevchenko - and, crucially, they want their image rights too.
