A Spanish judge has named Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera amongst 42 people in an alleged match-fixing case.

The Basque midfielder was part of the Real Zaragoza team that played in a 2-1 win over Levante at the end of the 2010-11 season that is under investigation.

Herrera was listed along with every other player that represented their club, along with the Zaragoza manager and president.

It has previously been reported in court that the Levante team were offered £766,000 to lose the match.

A judge will now decide whether any prosecutions are required.

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini wants to extend Frank Lampard's loan deal.

Lampard joined from sister club, New York City, in a deal that is due to expire at the end of December. The 36-year-old is expected to return to New York for training ahead of the American MLS football season.

But Lampard's form has raised the possibility of the loan being extended.

Before December finishes we will have a decision but, as I repeat, I think Frank is a very important player for us and I hope we will not have any problems for him to stay here. But I cannot say just from one side what will happen with him.

– Manuel Pellegrini
