Ferguson dismisses Lampard rumours

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson says there is "no foundation" in rumours linking Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard with a move to Old Trafford.

The 70-year-old Scot questions the wisdom of signing players during the January transfer window, believing that the best players will not be available.

Ferguson also looks ahead to this weekend's FA Cup third round clash against local rivals Manchester City and says the home draw makes Roberto Mancini's side favourites.
