The England international has confirmed he will leave City at the end of the season when his contract expires with the club not offering him an extension.

The 31-year-old, who has already won the Premier League and FA Cup during his time at City, is determined to end his career at the Etihad on a high by winning all the honours on offer, with City well-placed in the league and through to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup ahead of Sunday's Capital One Cup final with Sunderland.

"We are going to be at Wembley for the Capital One Cup final and it's going to be a great occasion and I want to be part of it," said Lescott.

"That was something I thought about in staying and what we could achieve.

"If I can leave having won two league titles and a domestic treble this season, that would be perfect."

"I've known for a while that the club were not going to renew my contract, but not one performance has been altered by what has been going on with the contract. I just go out there and give 100 per cent.

"I could have gone in January, but I started the campaign and felt I've played enough games in competitions to warrant my place in the squad and some games in the team."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
