Tottenham and Newcastle eye loan move for Man City’s Lescott

Tottenham are weighing up the possibility of making an offer to bring Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott to White Hart Lane on loan until the end of the season, writes the Daily Telegraph.

Joleon Lescott

Lescott has been told he can look for a loan move away by Man City, despite the lack of central defenders available to Manuel Pellegrini, and Tottenham are vying for his services along with Newcastle United and French club Monaco.

Tottenham and Newcastle have both have injuries to contend with in central defence, with Younes Kaboul and Jan Vertonghen having missed several games for Spurs, while Fabricio Coloccini recently joined Steven Taylor on the Newcastle injury list.

After Man City’s New Year’s Day win at Swansea City, Lescott held talks with Pellegrini, who told him that he can look for a loan move in order to give himself a better chance of securing a permanent move at the end of the season when his contract expires.

Lescott, who was brought the Etihad Stadium from Everton by Mark Hughes in 2009 for £22m, has only made 13 first-team appearances all season, often finding himself behind Vincent Kompany, Matija Nastasic and Martin Demichelis in the pecking order.
