Frank Lampard has sought advice from Blackburn Rovers boss Paul Ince over his future at Chelsea, it has been revealed.

The Mirror says Lampard has sought Ince's advice, with the latter telling him his own spell at Inter Milan was the making of him as a player and suggesting the midfielder could benefit in the same way.

With the chance to again play for Mourinho and Ince's recommendation he should take the plunge, Lampard was already leaning in that direction before Chelsea turned down his new contract demands.
