Lescott latest

It looks almost done: once Moyes dropped Lescott and asked him to train on his own there was only ever going to be one outcome. And Nick Townsend reports in today's Sunday Times:

The only comment from Everton manager David Moyes yesterday was: “Something might happen very shortly. You might get some news soon, possibly today.” Everton had rejected offers of £15m and £18m but a deal worth about £25m, including add-ons, is understood to have been finalised yesterday, although City are unlikely to have heard the end of the matter.

Over at Eastlands, before City’s 1-0 win over Wolves, City boss Hughes said: “The clubs are speaking, which I’d suggest is a positive sign. Whether or not anything is concluded in the next day or so only time will tell.”

Asked if Lescott would be City’s last defensive recruit, Hughes said: “Not necessarily.”
