Frank Lampard is set to join David Beckham at LA Galaxy in January, according to the Daily Star.
The Chelsea midfielder has apparently accepted that he is no longer the lynchpin of the Blues side, and rather than spend the last few years of career warming the bench he will sign a deal with Galaxy that will take him up to the next World Cup.

But for the whole of Scottish football - for the glamour, the energy, the exposure - it would be better if it hadn't happened."
