Frank Lampard was snapped in a selfie with One Direction super star Niall Horan on Instagram on Monday night.

The Manchester City midfielder is looking to break the United States in the summer when the former England international joins Major League Soccer outfit New York City FC.

However, Lampard could be considering going down the pop star route with One Direction currently a man short after Zayn Malik quit the world-famous boyband last month.

The Chelsea legend joined popular Irishman Horan for a snap after presumably filming an episode of the midfielder’s new ITV comedy show, ‘Play To The Whistle’.

Lampard uploaded the selfie with Horan, former Chelsea midfielder Jody Morris and comedian Bradley Walsh and wrote the following caption:

“What a foursome! @morriskid @niallhoran @seannwalsh”

Lampard has scored five goals in 29 games for the two-time Premier League champions this season.

The former England captain controversially joined City at the start of the season after he quit Chelsea last year.
