Sky Sports understands that Swansea City manager Paul Clement attempted to lure Frank Lampard out of retirement in January.
Clement worked with the former England international at Stamford Bridge for four years and was keen to add some experience to his squad, who are still battling for their top flight survival.
However Lampard, who had a brief loan spell with the South Wales outfit in the mid-nineties decided against the reunion.
The thirty-eight year old announced his retirement in February after brief spells with Manchester City and New York City, which came after a thirteen year association with Chelsea during which he won a whole host of major honours and became the club’s all time top scorer along the way.
Swansea stretched their winless run to five games on Saturday when they fell to a 1-0 defeat to West Ham United.
They are now two points from safety with just six games to play and can be backed at 10/11 to be relegated.
