England international teammates Frank Lampard and Jermaine Defoe have both been backed for moves to America at the end of the season, the Express understands.
Lampard put pen to paper on a new deal at Stamford Bridge at the end of last season after it looked extremely likely that he would leave.
The midfielder, who turned 35 in June, has appeared in all fifteen of the Blues Premier League games this season but has been linked with a move to LA Galaxy.
Defoe looks the more likely of the two former West Ham United men to move on after making just three league starts for Andre Villas Boas side this term.
The 31 year old has been strongly linked with a move to Toronto FC, who are currently managed by his ex-Spurs teammate Ryan Nelson.
Both players are expected to be part of Roy Hodgson’s squad for next summer’s World Cup finals in Brazil.
