Frank Lampard holds talks with Derby County

Frank Lampard has reportedly held talks with Derby County over the vacant managerial position at Pride Park.

The Mirror reports that the parties have spoken with Lampard one of 20 serious candidates in the running the post, a number owner Mel Morris hopes to whittle down to just a select few over the weekend.

If the reports are true then it’s the second club Lampard has spoken to in the space of a week.

The 39-year-old met Ipswich Town chiefs not once, but twice, but just as it looked like a deal could be on the cards, it emerged that talks had broken down.

The Tractor Boys were also hotly linked with Jack Ross, who is today (Friday) set to be unveiled as the new Sunderland manager, with Shrewsbury Town’s promotion-chasing gaffer Paul Hurst now once again the favourite for the Suffolk vacancy.

Other names in the mix for the Derby job, which opened up on Tuesday following the departure of Gary Rowett to Stoke City, include Brentford Boss Dean Smith, former Ipswich manager Mick McCarthy, and Derby’s Academy Director Darren Wassall.

However, it’s Lampard who's the scorching hot 1/5 frontrunner in the betting, as he edges closer to landing his first job in football management.

Meanwhile, there are Chinese whispers circulating that Lampard’s uncle, veteran gaffer Harry Redknapp, could be set to lend his nephew a hand as part of his Rams backroom staff - the former Tottenham boss previously worked at the club as a football advisor at the end of the 2015/16 campaign.
