“I’d like to get it sorted after the World Cup. The American thing is an option, I make no bones about that,” he admitted.
“I’m looking at different options, but the main thing is I want to carry on playing. I feel very fit and fresh and I’m enjoying it so I will keeping I’d love to play for a few more years.”
Some online bookmakers have suspended betting on where Frank Lampard’s next club will be after an increase in the number of bets being placed on the Englishman joining the MLS.
