Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard said he's convinced Reece James will get better and better, after the young full-back sign contract extension to remain at Chelsea until the summer of 2025.

Lampard told the media during his pre-match press conference that he believes a lot in Reece James' talent.

“I rate him very highly, I knew him as a youth player in the academy here. I saw him on loan last year where he did fantastically well at Wigan,” Lampard said.

“I tried to get him to Derby, but he couldn't come in mid-season. But I admired him a lot. And then work with him, I feel the same, and even more so now he's got his foot into the first team.

“I think there's a lot more to come from Reece James, a really talented player. Like a lot of the younger players, he wants to learn, improve, train and do the right things.

“And he has that talent, so it's great for the club that he's signed for so long.”

James is likely to be in Chelsea's line up against Newcastle tomorrow.
