Frank Lampard is ready to sign a new contract with Chelsea.

The Daily Mail says Lampard has told Chelsea he is ready to sign a new contract after his hat-trick secured a dramatic 4-3 Carling Cup win over Leicester.

Manager Avram Grant, whose side trailed 3-2 at Stamford Bridge until Andriy Shevchenko's 87th-minute equaliser, said: "Frank has told me he wants to stay and the club want him to stay so I'm sure we can find a solution. In the last game he got three assists but he does so many things well."
