Joleon Lescott: Manchester City defender could be on the move in January

Reports coming out of Turkey on New Year's Day claimed Besiktas were in discussions to sign England international Lescott during this month's transfer window.

Lescott's future has been the subject of conjecture for some time with the former Everton man's contract due to expire at the end of the season.

The 31-year-old has found himself down the pecking order at City this season with Vincent Kompany, Matija Nastasic and Martin Demichelis all ahead of him in Manuel Pellegrini's plans.

Lescott's representative, James Featherstone of OmniSports Management, has confirmed Besiktas have made contact over the defender, but that Lescott is focused on life at City until he is told otherwise.

"It is true that Besiktas have made contact regards Joleon," Featherstone told Sky Sports.

"Joleon is able to talk to interested clubs now as he is in the final six months of his contract and a number of clubs have expressed an interest in him.

"However, at the moment Joleon is focused on doing his best for Manchester City and is ready to give his all when called upon.

"Joleon is a Manchester City player, so if any club are interested in signing him prior to his contract expiring they have to agree something with Manchester City first and then we will see if we can take it any further."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.

That's Why We Didn't Want Jose At United

There is plenty of reaction to Mourinho's antics (Isn't that exactly what he wanted?) plus thoughts on Connor Wickham, Fabio Borini, beach balls and Tim Sherwood...
