Former Chelsea assistant manager Jody Morris admits Frank Lampard made a move for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.

Morris and Lampard were dumped by Chelsea in January.

"I know Chelsea were previously interested in Haaland. I know he was talking to Frank [Lampard] when he was Chelsea manager. I think he's a guy who knows he's in high demand and won't be in a hurry to make a decision, just as he has done until now," Morris told Stadium Astro.

"He's in a good position but there will be seven or eight big teams behind him. It will take something special to get him. I know he had options (to reach the Premier League) before moving to Borussia Dortmund and he made the decision that he thought it was the best for his career. It seems he got it right."
