The agent of Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard, Steve Kutner, has denied giving an interview in which he was reported to have said his client will leave the club at the end of the season.

Lampard, 34, has had offers from the likes of LA Galaxy, Lazio and Inter Milan as his contract draws to a conclusion at the end of the season.

However, despite being offered no fresh contract renewal, the England midfielder is focused only on Chelsea until the summer and has given no clues as to where his future lies.

On Thursday night, a report on Cittaceleste.it quoted Kutner as saying: "At this moment, Lampard is exclusively thinking about the present, in other words Chelsea. As for the future, the only certainty is that he will change team at the end of the season."

However, the agent told BBC 5Live radio station that he "hasn't spoken to anybody about Lampard's future and hasn't given any interview about it."

Should Lampard eventually leave Stamford Bridge in the summer, he would bring down the curtain on a glittering career that has yielded three league titles, four FA Cups and a Champions League winners medal.
