Lampard spoke to the Derby Telegraph to discuss some of Derby County’s transfer window plans for the upcoming window in January. The former Chelsea midfielder has admitted that there may be a few areas he may look to strengthen, but has insisted that he is “very happy” with the players at his disposal.

“I am very aware of the squad. The thing I did when I came in was to take everything at face value. I did that, and do that consistently through the season, and I have been really pleased,” Lampard said.

“But if there are changes to be made in January, they will be things that specifically makes us better.

“In some areas, I think we are good. There may be a couple of areas we want to look at, but at the same time I am very happy with what I have got.”

When he was asked if he has any specific targets, the manager said:

“Yes, and the targets can change. It is very fluid. 

“From week to week you can change. It is a considered effort from myself and from the club from above. We do things together. In the summer we worked very well together and going into January I think it will be the same.

“If there are targets, it will be minimal, it won’t be lots. It will be targets I think can help the team and the squad.”
