Derby County manager Frank Lampard will reportedly sign on the dotted line with former club Chelsea as early as next week, just one year into his managerial career.
Appointed at Pride Park in his first-ever senior job last year, Lampard guided the Rams to a place in the Championship play-off final but eventually missed out on promotion to Aston Villa.
But having been shortlisted by Chelsea owner
The Blues will be forced to pay a £4m compensation fee to the Championship club for the move, but it's funds that they've already recouped following former manager Sarri's decision to succeed
The Italian head coach spent just one season at Stamford Bridge, but he guided the club to a Carabao Cup final, a third-place finish in the Premier League and all the way to lifting the Europa League in May - Sarri's first ever piece of silverware as a manager.
