Lampard looks poised to become Chelsea manager after Maurizio Sarri's departure to Juventus, whilst assistant Jody Morris will almost certainly go with him.
Just a year after appointing Lampard, Derby now seemingly need to replace him, and they're allegedly looking at Lampard's former Chelsea teammate Terry as a potential successor.
Terry has been working on Dean Smith's coaching staff at Aston Villa since October, and has been credited for his fine work with Tyrone Mings and Tammy Abraham at Villa Park.
Derby took a punt on Lampard a year ago, and moving to bring in Terry would be a similar gamble, as he has no managerial experience but brings a glittering reputation from his playing days.
Terry just won promotion to the Premier League with Aston Villa, but being handed the reins at Pride Park may be too good to turn down, especially having just seen good friend Lampard impress in the same role.
Villa will desperately hope to see Terry stay at Villa Park having been a valuable asset to Smith, but they'll now be worrying that their former defender will leave in a shock exit.
