According to the publication from popular English news outlet Daily Star, Derby County owner Mel Morris is determined to hang on to the services of Frank Lampard.

The 41-year-old Ex-Chelsea midfielder currently has two years left on his current Derby County contract with £1.75m on a yearly basis.

It was revealed that the Derby County owner is ready to offer him a four-year contract worth £2.5m on a yearly basis totaling £10m.

Chelsea legend Frank Lampard became the club’s all-time topscorer during his 13-year stay with them between 2001 and 2014.
