Chelsea hero Frank Lampard has told friends that he wants to stay at Manchester City for the remainder of the season, reports the Daily Mail.
Lampard, who joined the Citizens on loan this past summer after signing MLS side New York City, was expected to join up with his new team for the beginning of their season in March, however it now appears that he could stay on and help the Sky Blues challenge for the Premier League title.
This news will certainly come as a major boost for Manuel Pellegrini's side, as the England veteran has enjoyed a terrific opening couple of months for the champions.
As well as scoring against his former club earlier on in the season, the 36-year-old has contributed a number of strikes for the Sky Blues and was even handed City's Player of the Month award for September.
Lampard, then, could yet play a key role in the race for the title, and could even play a part in stopping Chelsea claiming the trophy. Jose Mourinho's side are currently eight points ahead of the Sky Blues after both teams secured victories in yesterday's matches.

Chelsea managed to beat West Brom at Stamford Bridge, whilst Manchester City had to come from behind to defeat Welsh outfit Swansea City on home soil.
The next few months will certainly prove extremely interesting, but it remains to be seen as to whether Lampard will stay on in England's elite division.
