Lampard on Chelsea target Rice: Good player; I've known him for a long time

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was coy today over talk of a move for West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice.

The Blues continue to be linked with a summer move for West Ham's England and ex-Chelsea academy star Rice.

But Stamford Bridge manager Lampard has opted to keep tight-lipped on any Chelsea interest for the 21-year-old Rice too.

"Declan Rice is a good player, you're right, and I've known Declan Rice for a long time, as he was in the Chelsea academy, but there's no talk," said Lampard.

"I keep saying, about every player we'll be asked about. Until these games and this season is finished, there's nothing to say."
