New York City FC have moved to sign Frank Lampard’s replacement, picking up former Argentina midfielder Maximiliano Moralez as their third and final designated player.

The 29-year-old has signed from Liga MX side Leon on a three-year contract, subject to receipt of his visa.

“When I heard of the opportunity to go to NYCFC, I knew that it was an opportunity that I couldn’t pass up,” he said.

“I’m looking forward to playing with players like Villa and Pirlo, who are two world-class champions who have achieved a lot in their careers.

“Also, to have a quality coach like Patrick Vieira, who has been one of the best in his position, recognised worldwide, is something that will help me immensely.”
