Redknapp: Lampard will be good for Chelsea kids

Former West Ham boss Harry Redknapp says Frank Lampard will be good for Chelsea's academy players.

Lampard is expected to leave Derby County for Chelsea in the coming days after Maurizio Sarri's move to Juventus was confirmed on Sunday.

He had Chelsea youth players Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori on loan as the Derbyshire club lost to Aston Villa in the play-off final at Wembley.

With the Blues currently under transfer embargo, Redknapp said: "It could be a fresh new Chelsea. We could see some real young stars emerging.

"They have an incredible academy producing all these great kids - maybe now they are going to get the chance."
