New York, New York – New York City midfielder Frank Lampard has said he is leaving the club at the end of his contract this year, he announced on Instagram.

The 38-year-old told the club’s official website: “As my time at NYCFC comes to an end, I would like to thank so many people for the kindness and support that they have shown me over the last two years.

“My team-mates have been a pleasure to play alongside. The amazing fans have given me incredible support and backing.

“I have very much enjoyed my time, and I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to play for such a great club and in such an incredible city.”

Lampard, signed by New York City FC in 2014, scored 15 goals in 31 appearances for the team.

Lampard added in an Instagram post: “I leave with many great memories as I embark on the next stage of my career and I’ll be making an announcement very soon.”

Lampard helped lead New York City FC to the Eastern Conference semi-finals, where they were beaten 7-0 over two legs earlier this month.
