Frank Lampard has agreed a free transfer to New York City - and Atletico Madrid marksman David Villa is set to join him.  


The highly-decorated ex-Chelsea midfielder and the Spanish title-winning striker were at Manchester City's Carrington complex on Saturday to complete the internal formalities of their respective moves.


Both deals are a huge statement of intent from City's US franchise which kicks off in the new Major League Soccer season next March.


Lampard is understood to be have agreed to a basic wage significantly less than the £150,000-a-week that he picked up at Chelsea.


New York's capture of Villa is another massive coup with 32-year-old fresh from helping Atletico beat Barcelona and Real Madrid to the Spanish title.

Oh man, I hoped Lampard would stay in Europe a few more years. Man, this is huge for US soccer.

Impossible is nothing.
