Chelsea icon ​Lampard close to being named Derby manager

Chelsea legend Frank Lampard is close to being named as the new manager of Derby County, Sky Sports have reported.

The Rams are searching for their next boss after Gary Rowett left the club to take charge of Stoke City last week.

Since retiring from professional football in 2017, Lampard has made no secret of his desire to enter management.

The 39-year-old confirmed on Saturday that he had entered into talks with the Championship club.

Lampard had also been interviewed for the vacant managerial position at Ipswich Town, but it is understood that he is no longer in the running for that job.
