England and Chelsea's Frank Lampard says he can continue to perform at the top level
England midfielder Frank Lampard insists he still has "two or three years at least" left to give at the highest level.
The Chelsea legend admits his Stamford Bridge career could be drawing to an end after revealing he is not in talks about extending his stay at the club.
Lampard’s current deal with the European champions expires in the summer and the 34-year-old appeared resigned to his fate after helping the Blues into the Club World Cup final in Yokohama.
He said: "I feel like I have two or three years at least in me at the top level. It is not for me to decide on this one. It's up to the club.
"Whatever happens, I have had a great time at Chelsea. I am determined to play a few more years and see what pans out in the near future."
Lampard, whose 11 years' service at Chelsea and third place in the club's all-time list of scorers has seen him become a fan favourite there, added: "There have been no talks about anything about an extension.
"Maybe things don't last forever. Although I want it to last forever, you have to be big enough to know what it is."
