Lescott disappointed at impending Man City departure

Monday 17 February 2014

Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott admits that it will be a ‘shame’ to leave the club in the summer when his contract expires, Sky Sports has reported.


Joleon Lescott


Since joining the club from Everton for £22m back in 2009, Lescott has established a Premier League title-winning central defensive partnership with captain Vincent Kompany, and has also won an FA Cup winners’ medal. Despite those achievements, first-team opportunities have become increasingly rare since the arrival of Matija Nastasic at the beginning of last season.


Lescott was linked with a loan move to Fulham or West Ham United during the January transfer window, but stayed at the Etihad Stadium after Man City failed to acquire highly-rated Porto defender Eliaquim Mangala. He made a rare start on Saturday, playing the full 90 minutes of the 2-0 FA Cup victory over Chelsea.


And the England international concedes that he will be disappointed to leave at the end of the campaign. He said: "It's nice to play. They don't come as often as I'd like but when called upon I think I can do a job.


"Vincent Kompany is a massive player, a massive part of the club. It's been great to play alongside him in the last five years. It's a shame it's going to come to an end."
