LAMPARD REJECTS PREMIERSHIP OFFER AS CHELSEA PREPARE NEW DEAL?

If newspaper reports are to be believed this morning, Chelsea appear to have had a change of heart over the future of Frank Lampard and it now appears that they have made the first move to start communication over a new contract at the club.
The details of the contract are yet to emerge but I am wondering how YOU the Chelsea fans will react to the news this morning?
However, it's also being reported here that Everton had offered Lampard a three year deal and that has been rejected!
For me, he deserves another contract and could do a great job playing deeper in midfield, picking his passes in the Alonso role. Obviously, this wouldn't be every week, but he is still more than capable of performing in that role for the football club.
Yesterday, Lampard scored his 193rd goal for Chelsea and in doing so, equalled Kerry Dixon's record at the club and is now only nine goals behind Bobby Tambling as joint second in our all time scorers list.
It's only when Lampard retires that everyone will realise just how incredible he is and that it will take someone special to eclipse his goalscoring record from midfield.
Surely Lampard has to carry on and become the clubs all time top scorer and if it doesn't happen this season, next season. The message is clear from the majority of Chelsea fans:
Roman sign him up!Thinking about a possible new contract for Lampard, I just wonder if it would benefit both parties if Lampard was also offered a role on the clubs coaching staff in addition to the playing side of things?
Experience in the game is invaluable and if it's something that interests him, working with youth development at the club and inspiring people to train as he has with the attitude towards the game Lampard has shown throughout his career would be a fantastic move by the club.
The problem with all this is the fact that Frank Lampard still loves his football and wants to play as much as possible.
What do you think? Should the club offer Frank a new deal that includes a role as a coach at the club? Should we keep him long enough to get the record and become our all time top goalscorer?
I would love to hear your opinions on this from as many Chelsea fans as possible!
