Tim Howard: MLS should force Frank Lampard to leave Man City on schedule

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini is hopeful a decision about Frank Lampard's future will be made in the next few days.

Everton's American goalkeeper Tim Howard has suggested Major League Soccer should force Frank Lampard to join New York City FC when his loan expires in January -- though he doesn't expect it to happen.
