​Rudiger given chance for Chelsea return after Lampard heart-to-heart

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has buried the hatchet with central defender Antonio Rudiger.

The German was out of favour at the club and was likely to move in the summer.

But no transfer materialised, and now the Daily Mail reports Rudiger could be back in the Chelsea squad.

The paper claims the two had heart-to-heart talks, and Lampard is ready to give Rudiger a chance to resurrect his Blues career.

The 27-year-old is happy to stay at the club if he has a fair shot at securing a starting spot.

It remains to be seen if he will remain beyond the January transfer window.
