Frank Lampard is on the verge of joining Manchester City on loan, according to reports.

The England midfielder signed for City's sister outfit New York City FC this summer, ending 13 trophy-laden years at Chelsea.

With the Major League Soccer season not starting until the spring, there was speculation that Lampard would head to Melbourne City, the third club owned by the City Football Group, on a short-term deal.

But reports emerged on Friday night that the 36-year-old was set to move to the Etihad on a six-month deal to help Manuel Pellegrini's men in their defence of the Barclays Premier League title.

Lampard was unveiled in New York on July 24 and admitted he was eager to keep himself fit ahead of his American adventure.

"I'm going to keep fit, that's the main thing. How I do that is not clear yet," he said.

"I'm going to sit round with people at the club and sort that out."

Lampard began his career at West Ham but moved to Stamford Bridge in 2001, making 649 appearances and becoming the Blues' all-time top scorer with 211 goals.

A spell in the Premier League would also be likely to help Lampard extend his England career, which has so far seen him win 106 caps, scoring 29 goals.
