The 29-year-old England midfielder is alleged to have turned down a contract extension that would have made him Chelsea´s highest earner with wages of £131,000-a-week but the player´s agent, Steve Kutner, is adamant no talks have taken place because Lampard and the club´s chief executive Peter Kenyon have not been free to set up a meeting since the end of last season.
Kutner declared: "The three of us haven´t had a chance to have talks. There has never been a time when the three of us have been free as Frank has been on holiday and Peter has been away. But nothing has changed. Frank has always said he wants to stay at Chelsea for the rest of his career."
