Former Chelsea midfielder, Frank Lampard, will join Manchester City on loan from New York City FC until January, the English club’s manager Manuel Pellegrini has confirmed according to a BBC sports report.
“From next week, Wednesday, he will start working with our team and he will be with us until January,” Pellegrini told a press conference on Saturday.
“He is working with the squad. He will fight for his position.”
The 36-year-old signed for New York City last month on a two-year contract after his release from Chelsea.
Major League Soccer franchise New York City are owned jointly by Manchester City and baseball giants the New York Yankees, but their season does not start until March 2015.
Manchester City plan to register the England international for both their Premier League and Champions League campaigns.
“He knows we have a very good team, we have a lot of players in his position. He is one player more,” Pellegrini said following his side’s 5-4 defeat on penalties by Olympiakos in their latest pre-season friendly.
“We have a lot of games particularly with the Champions League – so he’s very important for our team.”
