Frank Lampard will hold crunch talks with Derby owner Mel Morris this week after dismissing the constant speculation linking him with Chelsea as "irrelevant".
Lampard's impressive first season in management ended ultimately in disappointment after the Rams were beaten 2-1 by Aston Villa in the Championship play-off final at Wembley.
Yet his strong showing on his managerial debut has made Lampard a leading contender to take over at former club Chelsea should Maurizio Sarri leave this summer.
However, Lampard insisted: "I spoke to Mel three days before this game and we said we'll sit down and talk, and that any talk around that is irrelevant.
"I've got a two-year contract here, I've loved working here and I want to continue that, I want to continue progressing with the club.
"I have to say after my first year and the opportunity that this club gave me, it's massively important that everyone understands that's my overriding feeling. That's where I am.
"The squad will break up a bit, naturally. The loans go, whether we can get any of them back remains to be seen and a lot of players are out of contract so there's a lot of work to be done."
