Manchester City could be ready to let England international Joleon Lescott leave the club, according to the Daily Mirror.
West Ham are interested in Lescott, who, is looking for more regular first-team action in a bid to try and force his way into Roy Hodgson's World Cup squad.
Apparently the only stumbling block for the deal is the wages of Lescott, who is rumoured to be earning £90,000 a week which has caused problems for the Hammers.
It is also unknown if Lescott is holding out for a move to either Newcastle United or Tottenham Hotspur rather than be in a relegation battle with Sam Allardyce's side.
Lescott was part of Hodgson's Euro 2012 squad but has fallen off the radar since the signings of Matija Nastasic and Martin Demichelis and is determined to make it to Brazil.
Expect interest to flood in for the former Everton central defender considering the fact that his contract runs out in the summer.
