Frank Lampard rules out a January exit from Chelsea for Ross Barkley.

Rumours had it that the England international could be on his way to east London club West Ham.


Frank Lampard insists that Ross Barkley will not be leaving Chelsea this January.


The Blues boss says he still has a lot of faith in Barkley, who has made just six Premier League starts this season due to a foot injury he suffered in October.


Rumours had it that the England international could be on his way to east London club West Ham, but Lampard is adamant that isn't the case for the midfield ace.


"There's no talk here of Ross Barkley going anywhere. He's our player. I've got a lot of faith in Ross. That's news I heard like everyone else this week," said Lampard as BBC Sport published.


When quizzed about Olivier Giroud, who is reportedly a target for a few clubs across Europe, he replied: "Olivier Giroud there may be something that can happen. He's experienced and I have a great relationship with him. If the circumstances fall right it might happen.


"Willian is not going anywhere. His contract is up at the end of the season but he's still in talks with the club."
