The Sun says the ex-England captain was at the club's training ground on Tuesday with his new team-mates.

He does not start his player-coach role at the Championship club until January but is getting ready before he officially starts.

Rooney, 34, finished his two seasons with DC United in America in October with an MLS play-off defeat to Toronto.

At Pride Park he will start the coaching career he has had his eyes on since his time at Manchester United when he became the club's top scorer.

Tomori also played for Lampard on-loan with Derby County.

He believes Lampard is having success because has bothered to keep tabs on Chelsea's youngsters, which has enabled him to build a strong level of trust with them - unlike managers who have gone before.

Tomori told The Sun: "It was difficult to have much personal contact with the previous managers.

"But now we have a manager who knows the youth-team players and understands what it takes to be here at Chelsea."

It was only a year ago he was on loan at Derby, helping Lampard to dump Manchester United out of the Carabao Cup.

Now he's hoping to repeat that feat this evening this time as a Chelsea player.

Midfielder Mount, 20, revealed to The Sun: When I was 14, my dad told me I should leave Chelsea.

There are so many good players in the academy and a lot of people were saying not many youngsters ever get to make it here.

That was the discussion we had but I told him that I'd be the first graduate to make it since John Terry because it was always my goal to play for Chelsea and I didn't want to go anywhere else.

I loved the competition and I think the fact that Fik and myself both worked for Frank last season gave us a bit of an advantage for coming into pre-season.

Having an English manager who knows all the young English players coming through the academy has given both of us that confidence to go out and perform."

<![CDATA[Rooney leaves DC United with MLS criticism: They deserve more]]> <p>Wayne Rooney has signed off on his stint with DC United by claiming that MLS players must demand a pay increase.</p><p>The Manchester United and Everton legend departs Washington DC for Derby County.</p><a href='https://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/rooney-leaves-dc-united-with-mls-criticism-they-deserve-more-4302187?utm_source%3Dmediafed%26utm_medium%3Drss-feed%26utm_campaign%3DFeed-Latest%2BArticles%2Bfor%2BDerby%2BCounty'>Read more on Tribal Football</a> Wayne Rooney has signed off on his stint with DC United by claiming that MLS players must demand a pay increase.

The Manchester United and Everton legend departs Washington DC for Derby County.

But before leaving, Rooney has left some suggestions for the American competition.

"The salary for a lot of players [is an issue here]," he told The Athletic. "I think, for the revenue the league is bringing in, the salary is not high enough for in particular the young American players.

"I feel that they're negotiating against other American players, they're not negotiating against what foreign players make, I don't think that's right for them.

"They deserve more, they're working the same as we're working, they're training as much as we're training, and I just feel that sometimes they get took advantage of."

Rooney also suggested the league should adopt a European-style transfer market.

"Players also get tied up," he continued. "I think players should be allowed to move from club to club [more freely] - a bit more like it is in Europe, where if one club wants to sign a player, you have to pay money, pay more on the salary.

"I feel here players can get moved on too easily, they can have a family, come home from training one day and they get told they're moving to the west coast, the east coast.

"For a family it's really difficult to just up and leave like that without any real notice. Free agency is absolutely a big one for players over here."

Cole says the defender is benefitting from working with Ashley Cole.

He said, "He reminds me of a young Gallas. We talk about his development, I think it has been absolutely perfect.

"He has had his entire youth career in the academy, since his first six months with Derby with Frank and then Ashley Cole came in and played alongside him for six months.

"Ash used to talk to him every game, you can't imagine a better way to educate yourself and become a centre-half."

City snapped up nine-year-old Kai Rooney from under the noses of arch-rivals Manchester United in 2016 when his dad was at Old Trafford, says the Mirror.

And when Rooney moved from Everton to play for DC United in the MLS in the summer of 2018 they told the youngster that they would look to take him back into the City Football Group when the family came back from the United States.

Rooney is back in England after taking up the offer to be a player-coach with Derby County.

The Blues are on a six-match winning run following Wednesday's win over Ajax.

"Frank Lampard was like a brother to me when he was a Chelsea player. He and John Terry always took hold of me," de Visser told De Volkskran.

"Lampard is a special type. He doesn't talk much, but he is a boss. He sees football well. I followed him at Derby County.

"I wrote to Marina: fantastic football. Derby lost the final of the play-offs for promotion just from Aston Villa.

"The coaches at the academy are among the best youth trainers in the world. Lampard took a few of them into his staff at Derby County. They are back now and know all those young boys. That works perfectly. I hope that Lampard stays for ten years."

Rooney is finishing up the MLS season, as his DC United side were knocked out of the playoffs.

They were thumped 5-1 and the game called time on Rooney's MLS career.

The Daily Mail says Rooney will be asked to go through a whole preseason before he plays for Derby starting in January.

The Championship side want to ensure the 33-year-old is fit and not experiencing any rust when he starts training with the first team.

He will reportedly spend the Christmas break working on his fitness to ensure he can hit the ground running on his return to English football.

The former Norway midfielder played for Forest, Blackburn Rovers and Derby in England. But it is Forest where Bohinen would like to return.

"That's the dream, yes," he told VG.

"It would have been most fun if I had the opportunity with Nottingham Forest. But then I must probably have to do a little more to prove myself than training Norwegian teams between the two top divisions.

"I have a lot of different experience, but I've only worked as a football coach for seven years, so I got late into the job I like best."
