Former England midfielder Frank Lampard says he will leave New York City FC when his contract expires at the end of this year.

The announcement was made on Monday.

Lampard, 38, scored 15 goals in 31 games for New York City, where he has played since July 2015. Before then, he spent one season at Manchester City after playing 13 seasons at Chelsea.

Patrick Vieira, New York City’s head coach, says, “What Frank has brought to the locker room is something just as important (as his goals) — his experience, his elite mentality and his mentorship for the younger members of our squad have helped us greatly this year.”
