The former England international said he’d followed the team all through the season, and was eager to hook up with Villa and Pirlo.

“I’ve been watching all the games. I know every player and how they play. It will be a pleasure to play with them every day,” he told the Mirror.

“David and Andrea are at the top of the list. I’m a lucky man to be in the same squad as them.”

“The challenge is to come here and do the best I can, and win,” said Lampard.

“I wouldn’t have come here if I didn’t think I had a lot left in me.
