NYCFC present Frank Lampard

New York City FC unveiled their newest signing in Frank Lampard, who will make his debut for the club in their Major League Soccer introduction in 2015.

Former Chelsea star Frank Lampard completed a move to fledgling Major League Soccer franchise New York City FC on Thursday.

"I want to carry on challenging myself. I want to be that leader on and off the pitch," said Lampard during an introductory news conference in New York. "I've been watching games in the MLS for a long time back home. It's a great opportunity and a great challenge for me."

No decision has been yet made as to where Lampard might play until the club's 2015 debut.

"We're going to use the rest of the week to make a decision that's best for the club in terms of getting him ready for 2015," said Claudio Reyna, the club's director of football, stressing the importance of adding Lampard to the club's roster. "He's a professional. A leader. He ticked all the boxes in terms of the qualities to help grow our team."

Lampard, 36, will join Spanish striker David Villa at NYCFC. Villa will go on loan to Melbourne City before the newest MLS franchise opens play in March, and Lampard could possibly join him as both the American and Australian clubs have business relationships with Manchester City.

Lampard spent 13 years at Chelsea, where he won the Premier League three times, the FA Cup four times, and the Champions League in 2012.

The midfielder is the club's all-time top scorer with 211 goals and has played 648 games at Stamford Bridge. However, Lampard's contract ran out this summer and he decided to continue his future elsewhere.

He has made 106 appearances for England, the last in England's final game of the World Cup against Costa Rica. He said earlier this month that he has not decided whether to retire from international football.
