Lampard confirms Giroud can leave - if it suits Chelsea

Frank Lampard has confirmed Olivier Giroud can leave Chelsea - if the deal is right for the club.

The 32-year-old is desperate to leave Stamford Bridge to find more playing time opportunities.

Aston Villa, Lyon, Inter Milan and Newcastle United are interested, but Lampard says no deal will happen unless it works for Chelsea.

"There's no update on Oli and my answer remains the same as it has done recently," said Lampard after Giroud was an unused substitute in Sunday's FA Cup win over Nottingham Forest.

"I have spoken with him. If the conditions are that it is something Oli really wants to do and it works for the club and for me and the squad, then it's something that could happen.

"But it's only when all three bases are covered. So, we're still there."
