Former Chelsea star, Frank Lampard, has completed his loan move to Manchester City as confirmed by the club on Tuesday.
The 36-year-old, who recently signed for New York City FC, will play for City ahead of teaming up with City’s sister club in 2015.
“Joining up with Manchester City is a fantastic opportunity for me to continue to train and play at the top level and make sure I am in top condition for New York City,” Lampard told the club’s official website.
"I met Manuel and some of the players in New York and I'm looking forward to getting into training and making a contribution.”
Manchester City boss, Manuel Pellegrini, added: "Frank is a world class midfielder and this is an opportunity which works perfectly for everyone, the player, Manchester City, and New York City.
“I'm looking forward to working with him and integrating him into our squad. New York have made a fantastic signing by recruiting Frank, and I'm really pleased that we'll be able to have him with us for the first half of our season and help prepare him for his new challenge."
Lampard is available for all of City’s domestic and European games, taking up squad number 18 and could make the 1000th club appearance in his career for the English champions.
He currently sits on 973 games for his previous clubs and is available for 23 Premier League games, six Champions League matches, the starts of the League and FA Cup.
