West Ham consider offer for Joleon Lescott

Published Add your comment

West Ham United are set to challenge the likes of Aston Villa and Besiktas for Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott after the player confirmed via Twitter, that he was leaving the Etihad Stadium at the end of his current contract this summer.

The Daily Mirror reports how the former Everton man is set to leave the newly-crowned Premier League champions after five years with the club in which he made over 100 appearances and won four trophies.

However, this season has seen the 31-year-old centre-back fall down the pecking order for Manuel Pellegrini after playing just 10 league games in 2013/14.

Lescott has also fallen out of favour with England and was omitted from Roy Hodgson’s provisional World Cup squad for Brazil this summer.

The Hammers enquired about the player back in January, but Pellegrini was reluctant to let Lescott leave as he was unable to find a replacement.

Lescott will leave the Citizens on a free transfer and reports suggest that he would be willing to accept a pay cut from his current £90,000-a-week deal in order to play regularly.
