Shay Given set to move to Chelsea

Shay Given is set to move to Chelsea.

The Sun says should Derby boss Frank Lampard be offered the post, he will make a return to his former club along with current assistant manager at the Rams and ex-Chelsea star, Jody Morris.

Lampard will also take Given with him as goalkeeper coach from Derby.

Lampard is said to have already been involved in discussions with Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich before verbally agreeing to take up the position.

The 40-year-old is under contract at Derby, but the Blues will use some of the £7m compensation they receive from Juventus for Sarri in order to offset the £4m cost of appointing him.
