Lampard confirms Willian contract talks

Willian is in talks about a new contract with Chelsea, boss Frank Lampard has confirmed.

The Brazilian marked his 300th Blues appearance with a fine volleyed winner as Lampard’s side beat Lille 2-1 to take their first points in their second Champions League fixture of the season.

It was Willian’s second goal in two games – he also scored in the 2-0 Premier League victory against Brighton on Saturday.

“I have got no news on the Willian contract,” Lampard said. “That’s a conversation between Willy, his representatives and the club.

“Everyone can see I’m happy with Willy on the pitch.”
