Brighton lead Premier League clubs in race for football legend signature

The name of Frank Lampard will need no introduction to fans of the beautiful game, the 38-year-old being a great of the modern era who announced in mid-November that he would be leaving New York City FC at the end of the MLS season.

In a post to his Instagram account (below), the former Manchester City, Chelsea and England stalwart said that, after two years in the Big Apple, he was calling time on his MLS adventure.

As the plaudits rolled in for the 106 cap, 29 goal former England international, thoughts turned to his next move and were somewhat heightened by his cryptic last line of “I leave with many great memories as I embark on the next stage of my career and I’ll be making an announcement very soon.”

Whilst many automatically assumed that, due to his age (he’s 38), Lampard would naturally transition into management, it seems that this may not automatically be the case. According to bookmakers Bet Victor, Brighton and Hove Albion are 2/1 favourites to sign the former Chelsea and England star before 3 February 2017.

Despite his advancing years, Lampard would no doubt be seen as an important signing and one who would bring instant class to a side that is riding high at the top end of the Sky Bet Championship table and putting in a good shift at gaining promotion to the Premier League. Having a player such as Frank Lampard in the side would be a big advantage to such strivings.
