Frank Lampard is reportedly prepared to re-integrate defender Antonio Rudiger back into the Chelsea squad over the coming weeks.

Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger is reportedly likely to be provided with opportunities in the first team over the coming weeks.

Having fallen down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge, the Germany international has not been given a single minute of club football this season.

However, despite the Blues being willing to part ways with the 27-year-old, it appears that the player will be handed another chance by manager Frank Lampard.

According to the Daily Mail, the two parties have held extensive talks over recent weeks, resulting in Lampard being willing to re-integrate Rudiger back into first team matters.

The report suggests that the former Roma man could make his first Chelsea appearance of the season in one of their upcoming fixtures.

With Lampard having previously hinted that he would need to monitor the fitness of Thiago Silva, Rudiger could get his chance against FC Krasnodar in Russia on Wednesday evening.
