Frank Lampard has confirmed that Tariq lamptey has been in contract talks with the club and the talks are progressing.
"We'll see, he's talking with the club and hopefully he feels a bit of love that we've parachuted him in," Lampard said on December 29 regarding Lamptey’s future after handing him his debut in the 2-1 win at Arsenal.
"I'd seen him when I was doing my coaching badges and you do a lot of hours with the academy and youth team.
"I saw him train a lot and I know he has a different dimension as a right-sided wing-back. He has pace, a low centre of gravity and can go by people. Of course he wants to work on his end product and all the last bits."
