Tony Pulis welcomes Frank Lampard to the Britannia Stadium on Saturday

The midfielder, 34, looks set to leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season after 12 years in west London.

Lampard's agent says his man will not be offered a new deal and Pulis believes his time with the Blues has been good for both club and player.

He has netted 193 times for the team and Pulis said: "I think Frank has been a fantastic player for Chelsea.

"He has been unbelievable and he is a great lad and they tell me he is a real top professional.

"Chelsea has been absolutely fantastic for Frank - just look at the medals and trophies he has won.

"As a young kid starting football, he needed a vehicle to be able to achieve what he has achieved.

"Whether the argument is that Chelsea should offer him a new contract or not, well that is not my decision. But I think it has been a great marriage."

As for the possibility of Lampard playing for Stoke next season, Pulis added: "He has played down south all his life and I can't see him wanting to move up north.

"I think if Frank was going to go anywhere, I'm sure it would be down south."

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
