Veteran Frank Lampard could complete his move to Manchester City owned New York City FC next week following his release from Chelsea this summer, BBC Sport has reported.

Lampard is currently on a short holiday after representing England at the World Cup in Brazil, but could find himself New York’s latest big name signing with the club having already tied up terms with Spanish striker David Villa.

The 36-year-old spent 13 years at Stamford Bridge where he won three Premier League titles, four FA Cups, two League Cups, the Champions League and Europa League.

However Chelsea finally made the decision to let the fans favourite go even after making 40 appearances last season – although most of these were from the bench.

He still managed to score eight goals for the club, and in doing so became Chelsea’s all-time leading goal scorer with 211, made all the more impressive considering he is a midfielder not a forward.

Lampard also managed to score into double figures for an amazing 10 seasons in a row, and five of those being 20 goals or over as he leaves the club a legend.

It is not yet known whether New York will follow the example of Villa and loan Lampard to sister team in Melbourne, also owned by Manchester City, for a short stint to gain full fitness.
