Chelsea midfielder Lampard: I never thought seriously about MLS

Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard says a move to MLS was never seriously on the agenda.

Lampard penned a new deal with Chelsea over the summer.

He told Sport Magazine: "It wasn't a main concern, no. The MLS would have been a fantastic option for me if Chelsea had decided: 'Okay we're going to finish it there.' So I looked at it.

"The MLS is a league that's moving forward and they're very good people out there, I know that for a fact. Whether I'd ever play out there, I don't know now. But certainly, I don't look down on the MLS. The international thing didn't bother me because I felt that, if I went anywhere and played well enough, then I'd be in contention. And, if not, then I wouldn't be - whether I'm at Chelsea or anywhere in America."
