Former Chelsea man Frank Lampard set to join David Villa at New York City next week [Independent]

David Villa will be happy about this, it must’ve been getting lonely as the only player at nascent MLS franchise New York City.

Former Chelsea man Frank Lampard is set to join the Spaniard at NYC, according to the Independent, with a deal expected to be struck next week.

As NYC will not actually take part in the MLS until March 2015 due to their recent forming, and their sheer lack of a squad for the time being, Lampard may follow David Villa to Melbourne in the A-League in the meantime.

NYC is part-owned by Man City owner Sheikh Mansour, who also has a stake in Melbourne.

Kaka’, Villa, Lamps: the MLS 2014/15 is starting to take shape.
