Frank Lampard: The Legend
Former Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has agreed a one-year contract with Aston Villa.
The 36-year-old joined Schalke and impressed for the Germans last season but has returned to England after just one season in the Bundesliga.
Lampard spent more than ten years, the majority of his playing career, at Chelsea and is regarded as a legend at Stamford Bridge for obvious reasons.
Despite already being in his late 30s, Lampard has proven he still has the skill, as shown when he shone in the Bundesliga with Schalke last season, scoring 3 and providing 9 assists.
"I am very happy to be here," said Lampard. "I know David personally and it'll be interesting having him as a manager than a teammate for once. The project he's trying to build here at Aston Villa is one I'm very keen in."
The former England international will earn wages of around 45,000 per week at Villa Park.
Great decision in signing Lampard, and his pre-season form was pretty good! Did I do well getting you to buy him?
