Chelsea's veteran midfielder Frank Lampard is mostly likely to leave Stamford Bridge with no signs of contract extension but people think he should stay.

A poll by The Sun magazine revealed that a whopping 84 per cent of its readers think that he deserve a new deal at Chelsea. It said that 11,315 people took part in the poll, which was conducted after Lampard's back-to-back good performance. 

Chelsea has reportedly told Frank Lampard that he could leave Stamford Bridge after his contract ends this season. He is now free for transfer talks with other clubs as the Blues have not offered new contract.

"We haven't been talking about a new contract in the last couple of weeks," Lampard told BBC. "At the moment nothing has been said and my contract is up in the summer."

The 34-year-old England midfielder, who was sidelined for the Premier League match against Norwich on Wednesday after scoring a 25-yard goal against Aston Villa, once again put up a spectacular show on Sunday, leading the Blues to a win by scoring goal in each half.

Lampard found an equalizer for Chelsea just before half time and scored the winner 20 minutes from the finishing time.

He has taken his total goals for Chelsea to 192, just a goal behind Kerry Dixon who is the second highest scorer for the Blues.

Sadly, Lampard, who has been playing with Chelsea for the last 11 years and helped the Blues win many titles including the Champions League this year, is very likely to leave the Stamford Bridge despite his good performance as the club's owner Roman Abramovich has reportedly asked the management to extend the contract by only one year to players above 30 years of age.

The England midfield will be available in the winter transfer windows from Tuesday as his contract with Chelsea has not been renewed.
