Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott is set for a switch to Premier League rivals West Ham after the two clubs agreed a deal, according to the Telegraph

The deal will allow the £90,000-a-week centre-half to move to London on a three-and-a-half-year contract and stake his claim for a place in England's World Cup squad for Brazil. 

The 31-year-old is in his final six months at the Etihad and has only made eight Premier League appearances so far this season - leading to Lescott falling behind the likes of Gary Cahill and Phil Jagielka in the England pecking order. 

And with the likes of Vincent Kompany, Martín Demichelis and Matija Nastasić dominating the Manchester City back-line the Englishman has found opportunities hard to come by. 

Lescott played the full 90 minutes in his side's 6-0 Carling Cup semi-final win over West Ham last week, but could now be set to help improve a demolished Hammers defensive-line.

It is also reported that should the defender sign and West Ham fail to avoid Premier League relegation this season, Lescott will remain on a £70,000-a-week deal.
