Frank Lampard's new book is definitely a work of fiction.

5 February sees the release of "Frankie's New York Adventure", the ninth book in his "Frankie's Magic Football" series for children.

The midfielder was, of course, set to move to MLS side New York FC this month, but instead has extended his stay at New York's parent club Manchester City until the end of the season, after it was announced that he had never actually signed for the Major League Soccer side.



The 36-year-old had, however, only agreed a non-binding commitment to play for New York after leaving Chelsea, creating an embarrassing situation for both club and player.

Frank Lampard 'signs' for New York City FC

He will finally move to New York on a two-year deal in the summer.

This will surely not be sold in New York FC's club shop any time soon.
