“He absolutely has a long-term future at this club and we will see if and when he goes out on loan,” Lampard said earlier this month.
“The moment I got close with Fikayo is when I took him on loan to Derby and he was the player of the year and one of the best players in the Championship that year.
“He came back last year, played 20 plus games for us at a young age and then got in the England squad.
“There is a long-term plan for Fikayo in my head about his career here. And if he goes out on loan it will be to enhance his personal development, hopefully, help the team he goes to, and come back as a better player.”
