Chelsea to add ex-teammates to Lampard backroom team

Frank Lampard intends to take his Derby County backroom staff with him to Chelsea.

The Daily Mail says Derby will not stand in his way, provided Chelsea are respectful in their pursuit and pay £4million compensation.

Lampard will bring Chelsea academy graduate Jody Morris and former coach Chris Jones with him from Derby.

Meanwhile, Petr Cech is set to return in a technical role, though no final decision will be made until his Arsenal contract expires on June 30.

There is also a long-standing desire to bring Didier Drogba back to the club in some capacity, while former midfielder Claude Makelele, who quit as manager of Belgian side Eupen on Friday, has also been linked with a return.
