    Frank Lampard delighted as Chelsea confirm contract extensions for two players


    Chelsea duo Olivier Giroud and Willy Caballero have extended their contracts until the end of the 2020/21 campaign today's soccer tips.

    Frank Lampard is a happy man after Chelsea confirmed contract extensions for Olivier Giroud and Willy Caballero. The Blues duo were about to enter the final month of their deals but will be staying for the 2020/21 campaign.

    Chelsea bosses have activated a one-year option to keep striker Giroud, who was close to leaving for Inter Milan in January. The 33-year-old has been a fringe figure under Lampard, making only 13 appearances this term, but the Chelsea boss is delighted to have secured his future.

    "Since I have been back at Chelsea, Olivier has been brilliant as a professional and as a man in general," he said.

    "He has great qualities to help the squad both on and off the pitch, not only with his talent but with the example he sets every day and the experience he brings to our young squad. I am very pleased that will continue next season."

    Caballero has been Chelsea's No 2 goalkeeper since arriving from Manchester City on a free transfer in 2017.



    The 38-year-old is a reliable man between the sticks, however, and enjoyed a run in the team earlier this year when Kepa Arrizabalaga was dropped.

    Lampard said: "I trust in Willy, he trains brilliantly and is a great professional. He stepped into the team earlier this year and showed his quality, and his experience is invaluable in the dressing room free soccer tips.

    "I’m delighted he will be with us next season."

    Giroud has been heavily linked with a move to Serie A since his failed move to Inter Milan in January.
