Etihad Stadium side keen on keeping hold of veteran midfielder.
Man City boss Manuel Pellegrini is open to the possibility of extending the loan deal signing of veteran Frank Lampard beyond January according to the Guardian.
The 36 year old netted his first goal for the Etihad Stadium side on Sunday, ironically against his former club Chelsea, and was originally brought in on a six month deal but Pellegrini’s comments on Lampard’s future at the club appear to suggest that a long spell could be on the cards.
“Frank will stay until January because until January he doesn’t have anything to do in the United States because they are not working. In January we will see what is happening and we will make a decision then. It is not a problem in this moment.”
The MLS season does not start until March and as such could perhaps remain at Man City a tad longer before moving to join MLS side New York City FC, who are of course affiliated to Man City, which would aid their push for an extended deal.
Having spent 13 years at Stamford Bridge Lampard was not offered a new deal with the west London club when his contract expired in the summer and thus made a move to newly formed MLS franchise New York City FC, before moving directly back to the Premier League on a short term deal.
