The England international, Redknapp's nephew, revealed on Monday that he will not sign a new deal at Stamford Bridge, leading to speculation over his next destination.

However the veteran boss believes that Lampard will take the opportunity to move to Major League Soccer when his contract expires this summer.

"I don't think Frank Lampard would [join QPR]," he told talkSPORT. "I would be surprised if he played for another team in England. His heart is at Chelsea.

"I haven't spoken to him about it and I was quite shocked when I heard that he had left Chelsea but I could see him going to New York [City FC]. Going there for a couple of years could be exciting for him. I can see him taking up a challenge like that."

The 35-year-old leaves the Blues after 13 seasons in west London and is currently a member of the England World Cup squad.
