Frank Lampard joins City on a 6-month long loan
Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has joined Manchester City on loan from New York City FC until January 2015
Last month it was confirmed that Frank Lampard had signed for Manchester City’s sister club New York City FC on a 3-year deal, but now the England international will get the chance to play in the Barclays Premier League one last time with a 6-month loan move to Manchester City.
The England midfielder will likely be used as a temporary replacement for Sunderland-bound Jack Rodwell, as the Blues look to increase their total number of English players in order to abide by UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules.
It has been confirmed by the club that he will wear the number 18 shirt for the 2014/15 season.
