Frank Lampard has confirmed Chelsea are set to complete the signing of goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.

Speaking ahead of an EFL Cup clash with Barnsley, Lampard also told reporters that Willy Caballero will play in goal this midweek.

Mendy, though, could be ready for his Chelsea debut as soon as Saturday, when they face West Brom.

Lampard will be eager to play the Frenchman as soon as possible after Kepa Arrizabalaga made another high profile mistake at the weekend.

The Spaniard, signed for €70m just two years ago, has struggled at Stamford Bridge and is now likely to be relegated to the bench.
