It looks like Frank Lampard is set to dip his toe into the world of management, with the 39-year-old confirming on BT Sport on Saturday that he was in talks with Derby over becoming the club's new coach:

There's been interest from Derby and I've been speaking with them. I'm ambitious and I want to become a manager at some point.

It's a big club, with a big tradition and a big history, which I really like. We'll carry on speaking when I go home, and we'll see.

Derby have been on the lookout for a manager ever since Gary Rowett joined Stoke last week, and according to Sky Sports the Championship side are set to name former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard as their manager, with only a few contractual details to be ironed out between the two parties.

Lampard has been looking for his first break in football management and was interviewed twice for the vacant position at Ipswich Town, with the Tractor Boys opting for Shrewsbury Town boss Paul Hurst.

Derby failed to achieve promotion to the Premier League this season after being defeated by Fulham 2-1 on aggregate in their Championship play-off semi-final.

Chelsea U18 coach Jody Morris is set to join Lampard at the Rams, with the pair knowing each other from their playing days at Chelsea.
