Several clubs such as Villa, Southampton and West Ham are all paying attention to Cheek. After he recovers from injury, it is difficult for him to get a chance in the team.
Although Lampard emphasized that the 24-year-old player is still part of his long-term plan, he said that Cheek could benefit from the loan.
Lampard said: "I'm very honest with him. We had a few conversations last week. He is recovering well and he needs playing time. If it weren't for the epidemic, he would start the game earlier. Reuben might go out. Playing games is good for him."
"We respect him very much. This is a good choice for him. If this is not the right choice, he is also very competitive in the current lineup, but I want to find the best way out for Ruben. We find the best way out ourselves."
