“I haven’t given up hope on it,” Lampard said. “The club is still in discussions with him. We want him to stay at the club.
“But I also appreciate the fact that this contract for Willian is a big deal for him because of his age and where he’s at. I’ve been there before myself and I respect that.
“But the way he’s playing at the minute shows his worth to the squad and the group and it’s something that I hope we can get to. Whatever way with Willian he’s been a great servant to the club and if we can get it I will be happy. If not I will certainly wish him well because I’ve got a lot of time for him as a player.
“In the short-term we can see what he’s doing for us. It’s ongoing.”
