Frank Lampard's uncertain future at Chelsea proved to be one of the sagas of the football season.

The 34-year-old looked to be heading for the exit door at Stamford Bridge as his contract ran down with a new one, for a long time, seemingly not forthcoming.

But in what turned out to be the perfect end to the season, Lampard not only got the new one-year deal he craved, but also broke Bobby Tambling's all-time scoring record for the club and picked up the Europa League title.

Here the England midfielder sits down with Geoff Shreeves to discuss his delight at the new contract and just how close he came to leaving his beloved Blues.
