Josh McEachran praises Frank Lampard's advice, and says that he aspires to be like the England international.

New Swansea City loanee Josh McEachran has revealed the impact Frank Lampard had on his decision to join the Welsh side from Chelsea.

McEachran, 18, completed his loan move to the Swans on Monday and cited Lampard as a big reason behind the move, as well as a major inspiration and role model.

"I spoke to Frank [Lampard] a few times before I came down here, and he told me I would love it," said McEachran.

"He said it is a really nice place with great fans. I watch Frank in training every day; he always talks to me and that. I aspire to be a player like him.

"I had a few options, but I thought Swansea would be the best club for me with their style of play. There were a few other clubs - Aston Villa had a big interest, I think Bolton were there and Wigan."

McEachran could be in line to make his debut when Swansea face Sunderland on Saturday.
