SYDNEY - Frank Lampard will join Manchester City on a six-month loan from New York City FC, ending any chance of the England midfielder playing in the A-League this season.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini confirmed the deal after the English Premier League champion's friendly win over Olympiakos at the University of Minnesota on Saturday.

"From next week, on Wednesday, he'll start working with our team," Pellegrini said.

"At the moment, he will start working with our squad because he is a member of the squad. He will be in the fight for a position. We have a very good team. He is one player more. We have a lot of competition, especially in the Champions League, so he is very important to our team."

The 36-year-old former Chelsea star's new Major League Soccer (MLS) team is backed by Manchester City, who also own the rebranded Melbourne City.

It was suggested that Chelsea's all-time top scorer could join Spanish star David Villa at Melbourne City on a short-term loan spell later this year before the MLS kicks off in March next year.
