Lescott looks to see out career at Man City

Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott has said that he is looking to extend his contract at the Etihad Stadium and finish his career at the current Premier League champions.

Lescott, 30, who showed indifferent form following his big-money arrival from Everton in August 2009, has emerged as a key component of Roberto Mancini’s City squad and made 44 appearances in all competition last season as he helped City win the league title.

His contract currently expires in two years but according to the Daily Telegraph Lescott has claimed that he is happy at the club and wishes to remain beyond 2014.

I've got this season and one more. I'd love to extend it and finish my career here,” said Lescott. “I know where I've come from. A few years ago I was playing away at Plymouth on Tuesday nights. Now Tuesday evenings mean Champions League.

Such was Lescott’s form last season that he emerged as an ever-present in Roy Hodgson’s England line up during Euro 2012, where he scored their opening goal of the competition against France.

Lescott could come under competition for his place in the side with the signing late in the transfer window of Matija Nastasic from Fiorentina and indeed the young Serbia international took Lescott’s position for City’s opening Champions League fixture with Real Madrid in the Bernabeu.
