Frank Lampard has thanked the Chelsea fans for their constant support and helping him to enjoy football while his future remains up in the air.

The 34-year-old has already enshrined himself in club folklore, having played a key part in the Blues' many successes since his arrival in 2001. Talk has been rife that Lampard's long association with the west London club will end this summer when his contract expires but discussions have begun over an extended stay.

"They supported me throughout my career here and particularly in recent weeks," he said of the Chelsea fans. "The way they were with me then is the way they have been recently and all the time I've been here. I just wanted to say thanks back."
