Frank Lampard 1 Frank Lampard is refusing to rule out the possibility of staying at Manchester City beyond the end of his current loan deal.The 36-year-old is due to stay at the Etihad Stadium until January 1, 2015, before joining up with City’s sister club New York City in the MLS, and there has already been talk of extending that by at least a month until the start of February.And although the former Chelsea midfield star claims he has not given the situation much thought, when asked about staying for longer, he did not dismiss the idea.He said: “The temptation is to not get ahead of myself in my career. I am here until January 1, basically, so I will focus on that and see what happens then.“There has been a lot said about when the season starts [in the USA], but the only thing that can decide my future is how well I am playing. They will be kicking me out in January if I don’t play very well!“I am just looking game to game and trying to play as well as I can.“I have scored a few goals and I hope they can see my desire. I haven’t come here just to train and make up numbers in the squad.“People might have thought that was the case, but it’s not. I want to perform – I have always done it throughout my career, and if people see that I am giving my all the fans will get behind me.”
