England coach Roy Hodgson doesn't want Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard to leave the Premier League.

Lampard is out of contract with Chelsea at the end of the season and has been linked with a possible move to America.

Hodgson said: "I'm rather hoping we'll still see him, if not in England then Europe which will make my task easier. If he goes further afield and follows David (Beckham to the MLS), it complicates matters but it doesn't mean your career is over with England.

"But the further afield you go, the more problematic it gets for the media and the England manager to follow you."
