Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard says his next move won't be influenced by hunting down 100 England caps.

England coach Roy Hodgson has urged Lampard to resist a move to MLS as he comes off contract in June.

But he said: "Wherever I go, whatever happens in my career - and I don't honestly know - if I can play at a great level of football and play at my best I will just see what happens.

"If I don't get to 100 caps I have given everything in every game I have played.

"When you get older you realise even more what it is to play for your country; that it won't go on for ever.

"Every time I am in and around the squad I will give my all, whether it is starting or on the bench. I have got a lot of respect for the manager and I think he respects that I want to help in any way that I can."
