Lampard confirmed in his press conference at Cobham Training Cente
Lampard gave his thoughts on the outgoings and believes the outgoings do not necessarily mean that the Blues will make new signings in the winter transfer window.
"In terms of players, I think it is great for Danny to leave and go and play for himself to try and get some games,"
. "Fikayo's a developing player. As a squad, we had four center-backs last year, and you can't play four in one game. You try to find consistency at different times. At one point Fikayo was in that, and then later on not so much.
"I am not concerned with getting players out to bring some in at this point. I am trying to make sure the balance of the squad is right and if players do move on, then that's beneficial for them and our squad, I see that as a positive."
