Frank Lampard´s Chelsea future still appears to be in limbo after coach Avram Grant revealed he was not party to any of the negotiations aimed at keeping the England midfielder at the club.

Lampard, who claimed a hat-trick in the dramatic 4-3 win over Leicester in the Carling Cup fourth round at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night, has yet to commit himself to a new long-term deal - sparking fears he will quit the club.

Lampard´s contract expires in 18 months´ time, and Grant said: "Frank is very important for the team. He likes to do things to a high level that is his target and our target. I am not involved in the money situation. They are negotiating and at the end of the day they will find a solution. Frank wants to stay at Chelsea and Chelsea wants Frank."
