Manchester City’s Frank Lampard is being linked with an early exit from the Etihad, as it is believed he is keen on finalizing his move to the MLS, according to reports from the Mirror.
The 36-year-old was set for a move to New York City FC at the start of the campaign, but decided to remain in the Premier League with the current English champions.
With the loan window still open, Lampard is said to be frustrated with his lack of first-team football under Manuel Pellegrini and is now looking forward to joining his new team-mates.
The Chelsea legend has only started four league matches and is often used as a late substitute, but was still able to net five goals in the process.
He has featured from the bench a total of 20 times, and despite being on good form during Yaya Toure’s absence, he is unlikely to be given a regular role.
With already three matches played, NYC FC are currently on top the MLS league table with one win and two draws, although second place New York Red Bulls still have a game in hand.
