Manchester City captured Joleon Lescott for £24million yesterday to take their spending in the last 12 months to £216.5m.

Mark Hughes’ incredible spree on 13 new players, plus Stuart Taylor and Sylvinho on frees, has rocked the Premier League.

And City’s Arab owners have pledged even more if boss Sparky can identify anyone else he wants before the deadline, plus another £100m in January.

Chief exec Garry Cook said: “The excitement and expectation have reached levels that have rarely been seen in the last three decades.

“How could you not be excited?”
