Lescott’s contract at Manchester City only runs until the end of the season and, having not yet been offered an extension, he has previously conceded that he expects to be on his way out.

The defender, who has played a limited role at the Etihad Stadium under Manuel Pellegrini, has also stated in the past that he would be open to a move abroad if it is right for his family.

Besiktas have been credited with an interest in Lescott for some time and Ozen has confirmed that Lescott is still a possible target, although they do not want to discuss their plans in too much detail at this stage.

“Lescott is still on our transfer wish list," Ozen said, quoted in The Sun.

"Everything will become clear at the end of the season, players will be leaving and arriving but I don't want to disclose too much information yet."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
