Lampard won't be forced out of Chelsea by AVB

Frank Lampard intends to dig in his heels at Chelsea. The Daily Mail says Lampard will resist Andre Villas-Boas' attempts to force him out of the club because of a £1.5million loyalty bonus in his contract.

The 33-year-old negotiated the payment - to be paid at the end of his deal in June 2013 - when he signed a £130,000-a-week contract in 2008.

Lampard was one of three high-profile players axed by manager Andre Villas-Boas for the Champions League tie against Napoli, which Chelsea lost 3-1.
