Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has reiterated his desire to keep Spanish winger Pedro beyond January transfer window.

Pedro has made just 11 appearances this season and his contract is set to run out at the end of the season.

However, Lampard remains adamant that the 32-year-old is still part of his plans going forward.

“He is part of my plans, I started the season and he was in my team, and then, unfortunately, he got injured at Norwich before the game, and I had to make a change. Then he was out for a while, and I do have competition in that area," said Lampard

"He has had bits here and there, I know he wants more games, I get that. But he certainly has something that he can contribute here with his experience and his ability to break lines and run behind people and maybe get those goals in and around the box.

"He is here, I know his contract is up at the end of the season but I am not even looking that far ahead. He is here, he is part of the squad and I need everybody because football can change very quickly. There can be a period of games where you are on the bench, out of the squad, something changes an that is the moment that you have to come in and produce.

"I have got no winners in this game, I want the club to be the winner. People come in and do well, they stay in the team.”

Pedro is likely to be on the bench when Chelsea face Burnley at Stamford Bridge this afternoon.
