Report – Newcastle Want To Sign Frank Lampard

In what they are calling an exclusive, the Express are reporting on Sunday that both Newcastle and Brighton are thinking of offering Frank Lampard a one year contract when he finishes his current contract at New York City FC in the MLS.

The new contract would be dependent on the clubs gaining promotion to the Premier League this season.


Frank Lampard – New York City midfielder

He signed a pre-contract agreement to play for New York City FC in January of last year when he was still on Manchester City’s books.

He was supposed to start on 1st July last year, but injury delayed his debut in the MLS where has played for two seasons.

And only last Monday the New York club announced that Lampard would leave when his current contract is finished.

But Frank is already 38 and turns 39 next June and that’s fairly old for a footballer – and what would a one year deal  for Frank at Newcastle really accomplish?

The Express don’t offer any level of detail as to how they arrived at the story and they report Frank would likely choose Brighton & Hove Albion over Newcastle.

That’s based on the fact the former West Ham, Chelsea and England midfielder has a home in London and the location on the south coast would be more convenient than in the north-east.

It doesn’t make too much sense to us that Frank be signed by Newcastle on a one year deal next year.

What do you think?

    Glad Pardew is being found out for the fraud that he is, majority of Palace fans want him out. Can’t organise a defence, tactically clueless, no plan b, endless amount of excuses, massive ego

    beat Burton (20th) 2-0
    drew with Wigan (23rd) 1-1
    beat Barnsley (15th) 2-1
    beat Ipswich (17th) 1-0

    I don’t want Pardew to get the sack because then hes just going to be another loser like Souness or Mclaren commenting on our games blaming the fans and everything else apart from their own tactics and team selections!

    Typical Toon fans

    Ed puts up an article about Lampard and you all log on and gripe about Pardew.

    Well done guys!

    He did own a holiday home 12 miles from Brighton but I believe he sold it a few years ago.
