Frank Lampard has dropped his biggest hint yet that he could be heading to Major League Soccer in America, after refusing to rule out the idea of a move to LA Galaxy when his Chelsea contract runs out this summer.
It remains unclear if the midfielder has decided his future, as it seems he is still holding out for a new deal at Chelsea.
However, he looks surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge as there is still no sign of the Blues offering a new deal, meaning he will be free to talk to any club, either in Britain or abroad.
As reported in the Mirror, Lampard has stated his belief that a move to MLS wouldn’t hamper his chances in the England squad stating: “While I’m available for England - and I certainly am now and in the future - I want to do my best to try to put myself in the squad.
“I don’t think it rules out anything, including America”, he added.
However, the midfielder has indicated that if a move was on the agenda then he would have to talk to England boss Roy Hodgson about it first.
"I haven’t had the conversation with the manager about it," the veteran midfielder added. "I’ve seen players get picked before, playing all over the world.
“If there’s ever a time, whenever it is, where there’s an option of going outside Europe, I’m sure me and Roy would have the conversation about that.”
The Chelsea star gives the impression that if he’s still playing regular football and impressing on the pitch – regardless of what league he's in - then he could convince Hodgson to select him for the World Cup next summer in Brazil.
Up until now the 34-year-old has been coy on his future, so to bring up a move to MLS with less than two months of the season seems to be his clearest indication yet.
