Everton and Man City agree fee for Joleon Lescott

Table of Contents
Everton have agreed a fee with Premier League rivals Manchester City for the sale of defender Joleon Lescott.

The England international is expected to undergo a medical on Monday after City finally matched the Merseysiders' valuation of £24 million.

Lescott has been a long-time target of City's manager, Mark Hughes, and handed in a transfer request to force through a move after Everton's manager David Moyes had refused to sell him.

He was not included in Everton's squad for their previous two matches, increasing speculation that a move could be in the offing.

A statement on City's official website said: "Manchester City can confirm that agreement has been reached with Everton for the transfer of Joleon Lescott.

"The move is subject to the player agreeing personal terms and passing a medical."

Lescott now looks poised to join a lengthy list of expensive signings at City this summer, following Emmanuel Adebayor, Carlos Tévez, Kolo Touré, Gareth Barry and Roque Santa Cruz.
