Chelsea are ready to offer captain John Terry, Ashley Cole and Frank Lampard new contracts at the end of the season, according to assistant boss Steve Holland.

The veteran trio are yet to agree extensions to their current deals, leading to suggestions they could all leave west London this summer.

But Holland says such has been the service all three players have given Chelsea, they are all likely to remain at the club beyond the end of the current campaign.

"John [Terry] has had an outstanding season; we have the best defensive record in the Premier League and he's played in almost all of that and been a major part of it all," Holland said.

"I know that John wants to stay at Chelsea, and Chelsea want John to stay, so hopefully that situation can be concluded amicably over the next few weeks.

"It's the same situation [with Lampard and Cole], we're dealing with not just normal players, but magnificent servants for this club over a long period. So full respect will be given for those players."

With just 24 league goals conceded Chelsea possess the tightest defence in the Premier League, and their success at the back has been orchestrated by Terry, who has been a near ever-present for the Blues this term.

Cole and Lampard meanwhile have played peripheral first team roles for Chelsea this season, with both making 12 and 18 starts in all the Premier League during the current campaign.

Left-back Cole has been forced to play second fiddle to Cesar Azpilicueta, who has been preferred at full back despite it not being the Spaniard's ideal position, while Lampard's appearances have suffered amid the addition of Nemanja Matic.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has suggested the club require a significant overhaul in the summer and having already allowed Kevin de Bruyne and Juan Mata to leave was linked with allowing the trio to take their leave.
