Bournemouth star Harry Wilson has described Frank Lampard as a massive influence on his career so far.
The 22-year-old is currently on loan from Liverpool, just like he was when he played under Lampard at Derby County last season.
Wilson was a key man in the Rams’ journey to the Championship play-offs, scoring 16 goals and netting four assists.
The midfielder has netted seven in the Premier League this season and has been a bright spark in Bournemouth’s campaign to beat relegation.

And Wilson has praised Lampard for the way that he helped him change his game last season at Pride Park.
“He was massive for my development and my career so far,” Wilson told the Bournemouth matchday programme.
“Before I went there, speaking to him on the phone felt like he was the manager who wanted me the most as I had a couple of other clubs who were interested.
“He’d watched my games and told me where he saw me fitting into his team and I knew from that moment that going to Derby was the right decision and throughout the season it became clear that I had decided well.
“I learned a lot from him, not just playing in my usual position because he played me in central midfield for a lot of games.
“That was new to me but he pulled me into his office and said he felt I was a player who could play there and he showed me a few
videos, gave me a few tactical pointers and my game came on leaps and bounds under him.
“I definitely owe him a lot.”
