And Redknapp believes his nephew is in line to take over at Stamford Bridge.

I think it will be a major surprise if he does not get the job. It looks to me as though it will happen,’ he told talkSPORT on Monday morning.

‘It’s brilliant for him. A shame for Derby. He has gone up there and done a good job. 

‘I’m sure Derby loved having him there, the fans and everybody so it will be a shame for them, the club, the fans, but for Chelsea it is a great move for them.

‘He is idolised at Chelsea. He is a genuine legend there. He knows the game, he knows what it’s about, he has a touch of class and I think he will be great.’ 

Lampard just missed out on Premier League promotion with Derby last campaign after losing 2-1 to Aston Villa in the Championship play-off final.

The club is braced for an official approach from the Blues, who would have to pay £4million to buy the former Chelsea midfielder out of his deal.
