Manchester City have secured former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard on a six-month loan deal.
36-year-old Lampard signed for New York City last month on a two-year contract after his release from Chelsea, but has been loaned out to the MLS franchise owners Manchester City, in a move that will surprise everyone. How much game time the midfielder will get when competing against the likes of Yaya Toure, Fernando, Fernandinho, David Silva, Samir Nasri, James Milner and Jesus Navas remains to be seen, but Manuel Pellegrini insists this is no a publicity stunt. "From next week, Wednesday, he will start working with our team and he will be with us until January," said the manager in his press conference. "He is working with the squad. He will fight for his position."
