Lampard waiting to open Chelsea contract talks

Frank Lampard is waiting to open new contract talks with Chelsea, it has been revealed.

The Observer says Lampard has entered the final year of his contract and will find a ready home at Jose Mourinho's Inter. The England midfielder has not received an offer of a new deal since rejecting an approach by the club to match John Terry's £130,000-a-week contract in the aftermath of Mourinho's sacking, the timing of which he considered disrespectful.

Lampard has, however, declined the opportunity to 'buy out' the final season of his contract.
