Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has told two senior players to find a new club before the end of the transfer window.

In one of his recent press conferences, new Chelsea boss Lampard told reporters that midfielders Tiemoue Bakayoko and Danny Drinkwater can leave the club this summer.

Former Blues midfielder Frank Lampard returned to the club in a managerial capacity this summer after his successful spell as the Derby County manager last season.

The Chelsea legend spent one season at Derby County before the Blues appointed him to replace Maurizio Sarri earlier this summer.

He led Derby County to the English Championship playoff final before the Rams were beaten 2-1 by Aston Villa who sealed Premier League promotion as a result.

Frank Lampard is starting to settle in his new job as the Chelsea manager and he has told both Bakayoko and Drinkwater that they can leave the club this summer.

French midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko just returned to the club from a season-long loan deal at Italian Serie A giants AC Milan.

He made over 40 appearances for the Rossoneri.

Both Bakayoko and Drinkwater joined Chelsea in the summer of 2017 from AS Monaco and Leicester City respectively.

Chelsea paid around £70m for the two players.
