Chelsea boss Lampard admits he must move players out to bring signings in

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard admits he's likely to move out players this month before making any new signings.

Lampard has admitted that the Blues may dip into the transfer market before the end of January, but suggested that players must leave in order to make room for new arrivals.

“I have ideas," Lampard told reporters at the beginning of the month. "We have a big squad and we have to see if that changes, if there are opportunities for players that aren't playing so much.

“That'll be a conversation between the player and myself and then we'll see if we can strengthen in the right way.

"But we're not jumping up and down to do so at the moment, my focus this year is purely on work. It's a long month."
