Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has just finished his lunchtime press conference ahead of Saturday’s Premier League match against Fulham.

AC Milan look keen on loaning him, and Lampard didn’t deny any of those links today.
He did admit though, that regardless of what happens with Tomori this month, he ‘absolutely has a long-term future’ at Chelsea.
"Tomori absolutely has a long term future at this club."

Lampard appears to still rate the 22-year old, which makes it very odd as to why he has dropped so far down the pecking order at the club.
The Blues boss did not give any clarification on this, but it does make you feel that there is more to this story than we know, perhaps something has gone on behind closed doors, who knows?
