Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck says the club is no hurry to complete new deals with England international duo John Terry and Frank Lampard.

Defender Terry, 26, and midfielder Lampard, 29, both have two years left on their current deals, but neither has put pen to paper on a new contract.

Buck said: “I’m hopeful we will be able to sort all these contracts out but it’s not something where there are negotiations every day.

“I don’t see there is a great rush but things should be done properly.”

Although Lampard has been linked with a move to Barcelona this summer Buck says he is not worried about losing him or Terry.

“When there’s approximately two years to go you want to think about re-signing the players, assuming you want to keep them because it preserves their transfer values,” added Buck.

“But I don’t think you have to sign them when it’s exactly two years. Sure we would like to get them done but there’s no deadline and there doesn’t need to be.”
