Everton Defender Joleon Lescott Passes Manchester City Medical

lescottJoleon Lescott’s potential switch from Everton to Manchester City looks set to be completed in the next few hours, after Sky Sports News reported that the England defender has passed a medical at Eastlands, and now is awaiting the completion of the final few formalities before the reported £24 million transfer is completed.

It is also reported by Sky that the deal that takes the former Wolverhampton Wanderers centre-back to Eastlands may contain a clause which grants the Toffees first refusal on striker Jo, should City decide to sell him, who is already on loan at Goodison Park.

The long-running saga surrounding the player now seems set to end, though the sourness it seems to have generated at Goodison Park, with Everton manager David Moyes publicly showing his dissatisfaction with the way in which City have conducted themselves, may well take a little time to clear.
