The medical I think is done and complete,” Frank Lampard told Sky Sports of Edouard Mendy after a 6-0 win over Barnsley.
“I want to be a bit careful with that. I don’t want to give absolute confirmation, but possibly over the next 24 hours. It seems like one which is done.”
Chelsea have completed a £22m deal for the Rennes shot-stopper. The 28-year-old is set to be officially announced as a Blue in the hours to come.
Lampard says Rudiger and Loftus-Cheek not being in the squad is just a choice he made and not to read too much into it. He confirms Mendy's medical is done and, all being well, there should be an announcement in the next 24 hours. #CHEBAR
