Frank Lampard wants Ashley Cole to join his coaching staff at Chelsea, according to reports.

The new Chelsea boss has already formed most of his team, with Jody Morris his assistant head coach, Chris Jones joining as a first-team coach and Eddie Newton and Joe Edwards making up some of backroom staff.

Lampard signed Cole for Derby last season and the Sun claim the 41-year-old is considering offering his former team-mate a place on his coaching team.

Cole is set for retirement after a season at Derby and Lampard heaped praise on the former Blue after his appointment as Chelsea boss.
