Hills make Lampard odds-on to stay at Bridge

The England midfielder has made no secret of his disappointment at being dropped

Bookmaker William Hill make Frank Lampard a 2/7 chance to stay at Stamford Bridge past the closure of the January transfer window despite the player being linked with a move away from Chelsea.

The England midfielder has made no secret of his disappointment at being dropped to the substitute’s bench in recent weeks, leading some newspapers to suggest that he could be on the verge of a move away from the club. One morning paper even suggested that Lampard could be heading to Old Trafford, but Sir Alex Ferguson was quick to quash those rumours in his Friday press conference.

“Do you really believe that? There is no foundation to it. We won't get the players that we would like,” said Ferguson.

“What can you get in January? What do you do? Do you take a second-rate player? No, of course you don't.”

Hills now offer odds of 7/1 that Lampard joins Manchester United this January, and 1/16 that he doesn’t. They also offer 5/2 that he joins any other club.

“There appears to be no doubt that Lampard and AVB are not seeing eye to eye but whether that will spark a move away from his spiritual home is questionable,” said William Hill spokesperson Graham Sharpe.
