The 37-year-old shared a photo of himself and David Villa.

"First day at training with @davidvilla. Thanks to him and all the lads for making me feel so welcome. I can't wait to get started with you all! #nycfc," he wrote alongside the photo.

The former England international is expected to make his New York City debut against Toronto at the Yankee Stadium on July 12.
