Frank Lampard confirms Chelsea exit

Frank Lampard
Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has confirmed he will be leaving the club after 13 trophy-laden years at Stamford Bridge.

Lampard, the Blues' record scorer with 211 goals, made 648 outings for the Londoners following his arrival from neighbouring West Ham in 2001.

The 35-year-old midfielder, who has been linked with a move to MLS newcomers New York City as his contract nears its end, won three Premier League titles, four FA Cups, two League Cups, the Champions League and the Europa League with the English giants.

"When I arrived at this fantastic club 13 years ago I would never have believed that I would be fortunate enough to play so many games and enjoy sharing in so much success. This club has become part of my life," Lampard said in a statement.

"Roman Abramovich, the man who saved our club and took us all to new levels. His desire to push the club to the top of the football world has rubbed off on everyone.

"All the managers and coaches who have helped me develop my game during the time I have been here. I have learnt from every one of them.

"The club will move forward and as a Chelsea man I have no doubt that with the quality of the players that are there, they will continue with the success that we have all enjoyed over the past seasons.

"Thank you for the memories and keep making history!"
