Frank Lampard: Looks set to leave Chelsea

LA Galaxy coach Bruce Arena has refused to rule out the possibility of a deal being done for Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard.

The MLS outfit have been strongly linked with the England international ever since it became apparent that Lampard would not be offered a contract extension at Stamford Bridge.

The Galaxy have a place available in their squad for a 'designated player' following the departure of David Beckham.

Lampard has been touted as an ideal candidate to fill the void, and Arena concedes that the 34-year-old does appeal.

He has been reluctant to speculate on the likelihood of an agreement being put in place, but has fanned the transfer flames with his latest comments.

Arena said: "I wouldn't be surprised if over the next week or so we're going to have some sort of decision with a designated player.

"We wouldn't rule a move for Lampard out. It's always a possibility."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
