Frank Lampard set to join QPR

Published Add your comment

Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard is on the verge of completing a shock move to newly-promoted Queens Park Rangers to reunite with uncle Harry Redknapp at Loftus Road, it has emerged.

England international Lampard, who was named on Chelsea’s list of released players last Friday, stands to pocket a huge £10m for joining the west London outfit for two years, according to The Sun.

QPR made their return to the Premier League, after just one season outside of England’s top-flight domestic league, thanks to Saturday’s dramatic Championship play-off final win over Derby Country. Bobby Zamora scored the priceless goal to send the Rs back to the Premier League at the first time of asking.

And it seems Redknapp is keen to sign a couple of players with a wealth of Premier League experience between them. As well as 35-year-old Lampard, the QPR boss is also looking into the possibility of securing the services of 35-year-old Rio Ferdinand, who leaves Manchester United after 12 years at Old Trafford this summer.

Ferdinand and Lampard both worked under Redknapp during their formative years at West Ham and have gone on to establish themselves as Premier League icons. Now, it seems, the pair could be headed to QPR to give the newly-promoted club a real chance of staying in the Premier League at the end of next season.

Lampard is Chelsea’s all-time top scorer, and there has been speculation that the Blues will hand him a one-year contract extension. However, with the season now over, it seems increasingly likely that the veteran midfielder will leave Stamford Bridge after spending 13 years with the club.
