Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott has spoken out about what he is planning to do next season.
He told The Independent: “”It would be tough to have another season like this.”
“I’ve only started 15 or so games and that isn’t great going into a World Cup. If my place in the squad was secure at international level then it would be a little bit easier. I only got in the last squad by default. It made me realise I need to make a decision and it needs to be the right one for my career. You can’t expect to play for England if you’re not playing for your club. I understand that I’m not playing as regularly in the England side because I’m not playing regularly at club level. I’d love to stay here but if it is not to be, then so be it.”
“If I can say I’ve won two FA Cups, the Premier League and a Community Shield during my time at City, then it wouldn’t be too bad would it?”
The Ex-Everton man is entering his final year of contract at City, and could then be available for a cut-price deal.
Many clubs are likely to make a bid for the defender with proven Premier League experience, league winning experience at that.
Everton though would most likely be the highest placed club to make a move for the Birmingham Born defender and this could be a vital factor in his decision. The player has also played for Everton before, he was part of a joint best defence in the league in 2008, pairing up with Phil Jagielka. If the pair were to be reunited and produce some of those solid displays again, the England Centre Back positions could be grabbed quite quickly.
