Sports source "France Football" claims that Frank Lampard's move from Chelsea to Internazionale is signed, sealed and delivered. The England international midfielder has apparently reunited with coach José Mourinho at the San Siro in a deal worth €9m.

The French paper says Lampard has signed a four-year contract with the Nerazzurri after a total of seven seasons of play at Stamford Bridge.

Lampard has been linked with a move to Inter Milan for several weeks now, following the appointment of Mourinho as the new boss of the Italian champions.

Mourinho has been relishing the prospect of reuniting with the England international, having coached him during his time at the helm of Chelsea.

France Football suggests that Lampard will be rewarded with an annual salary of 7.3 million euros at the Giuseppe Meazza.

The London-based club are now on the lookout for a creative midfielder to replace Lampard, with reports suggesting Luiz Felipe Scolari to have found his man under the form of Deco, who is on the transfer list at Barcelona.

Hasn't he only got one year on his contract at Chelsea though?

Looks like they're cashing in rather than letting him leave for free next Summer.

how many midfielders will be able to replace the goals. dont like him as a man tbh but he may be a big miss. deco runs the game but doesnt get nearly as many goals. maybe it will be left to ballack but still not sure if he can score that many.

certainly hope not anyway

Jose eyes Lamps capture

Jose Mourinho has conceded he is unlikely to secure the signature of Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard for the new season, but is '100 per cent sure' the England international will be an Internazionale player for the 2009/10 campaign.

Lampard's future at Stamford Bridge has been the subject of conjecture for some time as he enters the final year of his existing contract.

Mourinho, who took over at the San Siro in June, has made no secret of his desire to sign the 30-year-old after coaching him during his time at Chelsea.

Furthermore, Chelsea's capture of Deco on Monday has increased speculation that Lampard's time with The Blues will soon come to an end.

100 per cent

However, Mourinho does not believe he will land his man ahead of the forthcoming season, but is positive Lampard will sign for the 2009/10 campaign.

"This season? I don't think so," Mourinho told Portuguese TV channel TVI.

"Why won't he? Well, it's not because we don't want him to, but I'm sure Chelsea and Chelsea's officials don't want to sell him.

"However, for the next season it will be easier for him to join me at Inter.

"I'm 100 per cent sure in 2009/2010 he will be playing here."
