Frank Lampard set to make decision on his future "very soon"

Former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard will make a decision on his future club very soon, according to Sky Sports.

Lampard is the record goalscorer at Stamford Bridge - with 211 goals - but left the club at the end of the last month, ending a 13-year career with the Blues.


The 36-year old has had offers from numerous clubs, but his most frequent link has been with a move to New York City FC, who recently captured the signing of David Villa.

Lampard told Sky Sports News: "At the moment I have got a few options. There is no exclusive but I will be making a decision very shortly."

England future

The veteran midfielder, despite a fairly inconsistent run in the Chelsea side last season under Jose Mourinho, made it into Roy Hodgson's World Cup squad, captaining the team in their last group match against Costa Rica.

His appearance in the Costa Rica game in Belo Horizonte was his 106th cap - but his international future is still up in the air.

When players make the move to the MLS - which carries a reputation far lower than that of any of the top European leagues - it often signals the end of the player's international career, as has been the case with Jermain Defoe recently.

"Of course I would like to play for England again," he said.

"But maybe you cannot play for ever so again I've switched off for the moment. I have not made that decision either. I'm very aware that my England career cannot go on for ever and I have enjoyed every minute so we will see. 

"It will be a difficult decision but at the end of the day I would not ever have dreamed of having such an England career so I can only be happy with whatever decision I make."
