Frank Lampard confirms Giroud could leave in January, Olivier Giroud could leave Chelsea in January, head coach Frank Lampard has confirmed.

The Frenchman has started just two games this season and is inside the final six months of his Chelsea contract, having joined the Blues from London rivals Arsenal in the 2018 January transfer window.

The 33-year-old was an unused substitute in Chelsea’s 2-0 FA Cup third round win against Nottingham Forest on Sunday, and fuelled speculation he is set to leave by appearing to wave goodbye to the Stamford Bridge crowd at the final whistle.
