Chelsea release Lampard

England vice-captain Frank Lampard looks

set to head to the FIFA World Cup as a free

agent, with Chelsea likely to release him.

The 35-year-old midfielder's future has been

unclear throughout the Premier League

season and he was on a list of released

players on Friday.

Left-back Ashley Cole, striker Samuel Eto'o

and goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer are among

the others on the list.

They could yet be retained if they agree to

new deals with the English giants.

Cole and Eto'o have been expected to leave

Stamford Bridge since late in the season but

Lampard looked set to agree to an extenusion.

Chelsea captain John Terry agreed to a one-

year deal earlier in May.

Schwarzer is still hopeful of another

contract, but the Australian's release – along

with Hilario – could mean on-loan shot-

stopper Thibaut Courtois will return from

Atletico Madrid.

Chelsea are yet to comment.
