Frank Lampard: Expected to make loan move after signing for New York City FC

The 36-year-old signed for New York City FC, who enter the MLS next year, after ending his 13-year stay at Chelsea and has been linked with a host of clubs as he looks to maintain his fitness.

Spain striker David Villa also signed up for the new MLS franchise and has since joined A-League outfit Melbourne City on loan.

Like Melbourne City, New York City FC are partially owned by City Football Group, and Eithad Stadium executive Ferran Soriano has already indicated certain youth players could spend some of their development time at the Yankees Stadium.

Melbourne (5/2) and QPR (8/1) are considered possible destinations for Lampard but Manchester City were backed in to clear favourites on Friday.

Sky Bet Football Trader Jamie Munro said on Friday: "We've seen more stakes on Manchester City signing Lampard in the last 24 hours than on the entire market previously.

"It would certainly make sense given the link between the two sides, so we've reacted by cutting the odds significantly."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
