Frank Lampard has suggested that he is open to extending his loan spell with Premier League champions Manchester City, having put in a series of good performances for the club in recent weeks.
Lampard was released by Chelsea at the end of last season, with the London club not renewing his contract. He was snapped up by new franchise New York City, who are due to enter the MLS in 2015. He will provide a huge boost the MLS when he joins up with the New York side, but currently he has options to stay in England a while longer.
Currently he is due to return to the States from his loan deal on the 1st of January, but Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini could well look to extend this date if at all possible, given Lampard’s influential displays. He has scored four goals in the last three weeks and looks to have lost none of his positional skills that made him so effective over the years at Chelsea.
“There has been a lot said about when the season starts, but the only thing that can decide my future is how well I am playing. They will be kicking me out in January if I don’t play very well!” Lampard said of the situation to the Telegraph
“I am just looking game to game and trying to play as well as I can.”
It is clear that Lampard is very relaxed about the situation and is acutely aware of the fickle nature of soccer. He knows that performances on the pitch will dictate whether he can extend his loan stay with Manchester City.
With Yaya Toure likely to head to the African Cup of Nations at the start of 2015, there will be opportunities in the man City midfield for Lampard to get more minutes. Alongside Fernandinho and Fernando, he may well be kept on as an experienced option for the crucial period at the start of the new year.
No matter how long he extends his loan stay, he will eventually return to the MLS with New York and it will be incredibly exciting to see how he gets on.
