Lampard confirms contract talks

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how English Premier League club Everton are in contract extension talks with Nigerian international midfielder Alex Iwobi.

The 26-year-old has continued to flourish under manager Frank Lampard, and the Toffees are set to extend his contract despite the existing one running until the summer of 2024.

Iwobi has grown to become one of the best midfielders in the English top flight, and Everton are already making efforts to tie him down.

Lampard disclosed that negotiations are underway regarding an extension of the player’s deal, as he was also crucial to their survival last season.
