England coach Fabio Capello hopes Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard will turn down the chance to join Inter Milan and remain in London.

Inter coach Jose Mourinho has made no secret of his desire to take the England international to Italy, but Chelsea have so far not budged in their stance of rejecting all offers for the player.

And Capello believes it would be in the best interests of the English national team if Lampard stays where he is. He told Italian newspaper La Repubblica: "As England coach I would prefer it if Lampard remained in England. He would have less travelling to do that way."
