Chelsea legend Frank Lampard says he is no rush to sign a new contract at Stamford Bridge and is happy to wait for any discussions to be held.

The England international's future with the Blues was under intense scrutiny last season and he admitted he was relieved at his decision to sign an extension last summer, rather than opt for a more lucrative spell in MLS with David Beckham's former club LA Galaxy.

Jose Mourinho's return to Chelsea was a big factor in Lampard's decision to sign an extension and his experience has been crucial as the Portuguese has put together a new side at Stamford Bridge, with more of an emphasis on quick young stars.

However, Lampard's deal only runs until next summer and it was put to him whether he had already decided if he wanted to extend his stay in west London once again.

“There is no pressure on that one at all. I’m taking each game, each month and each season as it comes these days. No rush at all," he is quoted as saying in The Mirror.

Lampard has been a regular starter under Mourinho, despite being 35 years old and not nearly as mobile as he once was, and has taken one a deeper lying role in the Chelsea midfield to leave the attacking bursts forward to the likes of Oscar, Eden Hazard and Juan Mata.
