Retired England veteran to link up with MLS outfit.
Former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard is set to complete his free transfer to new MLS franchise New York City FC over the coming week, according to the Daily Star.
The 36-year-old, who was a part of England’s World Cup party in Brazil, has been without a club since leaving Stamford Bridge at the end of the previous season, but now looks to have agreed a deal to sign for the MLS club.
Lampard has reportedly been chased by a number of top sides not only in Europe but around the world too, and he is said to have been impressed by the set up at NYCFC, who are also owned by Manchester City’s Sheikh Mansour.
The club will not start competing in the MLS until March 2015 meaning that he might spend time with New York’s sister club Melbourne City FC in the Australian A-League until they are ready to start competing.
The midfielder became a legend at Chelsea, where he set the record for most goals scored as well as winning three Premier League titles, the Champions League, Europa League and four FA Cups.
Lampard will likely see out the remainder of his career in the Big Apple alongside former Spain striker David Villa.
