Derby confirm Lampard departure


Derby County have confirmed the departure of manager Frank Lampard to Europa League winners Chelsea.


The Blues all-time top goalscorer leaves Pride Park after just a season with Assistant Manager Jody Morris and First Team Coach Chris Jones in tow.


An undisclosed compensation fee has been agreed between the two clubs to allow Lampard back to the place where he won 13 trophies as a player.


The former England international led the Rams to the Championship play-off final, losing 2-1 to Aston Villa at Wembley.


Mel Morris praised the former manager an wished him all the best in the Premier League: “Frank, along with Jody and Chris, leave with our best wishes and I sincerely hope they have success at Chelsea.


“I thoroughly enjoyed working with Frank and while we would have loved his time at Derby County to continue, to build on the positives we saw last season, the opportunity for him to return to Chelsea as their Head Coach was huge."


Derby are expected to confirm the appointment of former PSV and Fenerbahce boss Phillip Cocu in the near future.
