Lampard’s Man City loan could be extended

Frank Lampard’s loan from New York City FC to Manchester City could be extended to February 2015, Sky Sports has reported.

The 36-year-old left Chelsea at the end of last season before signing a contract with the new MLS franchise, but joined Man City on a six-month deal in the summer as New York do not play a competitive match until March.

He has now made two appearances for City, scoring his first goal on Sunday against Chelsea, for whom he is the all-time top scorer. He could now stay for longer as Yaya Toure is set to be away during January and February due to the Africa Cup of Nations.

When asked about the possibility of extending Lampard’s deal, Man City boss Manuel Pellegrini said: “I can’t answer you about that (Lampard) at this moment.

“Frank will stay with us till January because before January, he will have nothing to do in the United States because they are not working. In January, we will see what happens here and then we will make a decision, but not probably at this moment.”
