Lescott on Tuesday

So it seems from Tuesday's papers.

The Guardian's Andy Hunter reports:
Joleon Lescott is on course to become the second most expensive defender in British football history having passed a medical ahead of his proposed £22m move to Manchester City.

The 27-year-old underwent a series of tests at a private clinic in Manchester this afternoon with City anxious for assurances over the knee problem that delayed the England international's £5m move to Everton from Wolverhampton Wanderers in 2006. Lescott, a virtual ever-present at Goodison Park despite those initial injury fears, has agreed personal terms on a deal that will double his £47,000-a-week salary at Everton and eventually take the fee to £24m with add-ons. Wolves will receive a £2.55m windfall as they are entitled to 15% of any profit made by the Goodison club.

Let's hope for a double unveiling tomorrow.

Double unveiling? It might well be triple if Sneijder or van der Vaart are added to the list.
