Frank Lampard joins Manchester City: Arrival of former Chelsea player could see Jack Rodwell leave for Sunderland
England midfielder has failed to impress at the Etihad Stadium
Rodwell signed for City from Everton for £12m in August 2012, but he has failed to break into the City side during his largely uneventful two years with the club.
The 23-year-old has won three full England caps, and is reportedly available for £9m.
The former Chelsea star Lampard will start training with City from Wednesday, after agreeing a six-month loan deal with the Premier League champions last week.
City manager Manuel Pellegrini confirmed the deal on Saturday after the club's International Challenge Cup defeat on penalties against Olympiakos at the University of Minnesota.

"From next week, on Wednesday, he'll start working with our team," Pellegrini said. "At the moment, he will start working with our squad because he is a member of the squad. He will be in the fight for a position. We have a very good team. He is one player more. We have a lot of competition, especially in the Champions League, so he is very important to our team."
Lampard signed a two-year contact with the New York club - owned by Manchester City and the New York Yankees - last month. The MLS team is scheduled to begin play next year.
