Frank Lampard is set to be announced as Chelsea manager on an interim basis until the end of the season.
Lampard will return to Chelsea on a deal that will run until the end of the season, as Chelsea conduct their search for a permanent successor to Graham Potter.
Potter was sacked last weekend after less than seven months in charge and Chelsea have compiled a shortlist of candidates for the role that includes Julian Nagelsmann, Luis Enrique and Antonio Conte.
The west Londoners are keen to conduct a thorough recruitment process and will appoint Lampard as an interim head coach until a decision is made.
Fabrizio Romano is reporting that an agreement has been reached between Chelsea and Lampard on a short-term deal.

Ashley Cole, who worked alongside the 44-year-old at Everton, is also set to rejoin the club as part of Lampard’s coaching staff.
