Frank Lampard has opened up and announced duo in Chelsea contract talks

Chelsea, Willian

Chelsea wingers Pedro and Willian remain locked in negotiations over short-term extensions to their expiring contracts, Frank Lampard has announced.

We have been in the headlines for all the right reasons over the past few weeks as there has been so much excitement surrounding the club ahead of next season, as Frank Lampard seeks to build a title winning side.

However, there has been so talk that Lampard is hoping to get both Pedro and Willian signed up to short-term extensions in order to help us finish the season, and maybe convince the pair to sign up until next season.

We face a June 23 deadline to finalise short-term deals for their long-serving wingers, with Lampard still hopeful of a positive resolution.

“As a club, obviously, if we are trying to extend players for that period we want them to stay,” said Lampard on the TalkSport website

“As is well documented we have a couple of players in that situation and we have until next week to find a solution, hopefully.

“It would be great for us, obviously, to finish this campaign with the players we started it with and with the quality players we are talking about.”

Both players may be coming towards the back end of their careers, but they both still have someting to offer the club so we are hoping that they do sign these short deals and help us finish the season on a high.

But we would understand if they did not and decided to leave on June 23rd
