JOHN TERRY HAS further added to speculation over the future of Frank Lampard by saying that he would like to see his team-mate’s number 8 shirt retired.

Lampard is believed to be on his way out of Chelsea at the end of this season when his current contract is up and the 34-year-old’s agent Steve Kutner was quoted last night as saying that his departure is “certain”.

Club captain Terry, who is a regular user of social media site Instagram, posted an old picture of himself and Lampard holding the FA Cup trophy this morning as well as the words:

Devastated is an understatement. We should retire the number 8 shirt in honour of Lamps.”

The posts unsurprisingly received huge attention as Terry and Lampard have been close friends for over a decade. However, he has since explained that he has no inside information on the situation by writing: “I have seen Frank’s agent’s quotes on Sky yesterday. That’s all I’m going on nothing more.”
