Frank Lampard: Chelsea midfielder has a fan in Martin Jol, but Fulham boss will

Chelsea midfielder Lampard, who is in line to make his 600th appearance for the Blues in Wednesday's Premier League clash with the Cottagers at Craven Cottage, will be out of contract at the end of the season.

Jol has praised the 34-year-old England international ahead of the match but has ruled out an approach.

"Frank is the most productive midfield player in England in the last 30 or 40 years," the Dutchman said.

"Everyone would love to have him. He's fit and is a good character.

"He will have a smile on his face if he listens to Fulham but I would love to have him.

"But it's hypothetical as he will never play for Fulham. I'm not sure he will play for a top-10 team.

"He's a legend - a living legend over there. He won all the prizes over there. In the end I have a feeling they will keep him."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
