Joleon Lescott: The centre-back was linked with a loan return to Everton in Janu

The centre-back has fallen out of contention at club level and his lack of playing time is risking his hopes of a place at Brazil 2014, if England qualify.

Lescott's limited chances with City has led to speculation he could leave in the summer and the defender has indicated he wants to resolve the situation.

He said in the Daily Star when questioned about his chances of going to the World Cup: "Sitting here now, if you'd asked me that last year then I'd have said, 'yeah, pretty good'.

"But you don't know. If I can play more regularly at club level, then I think I'll be there. Towards the end of the season, I'll address that.

"But for now, I'm fully focused on England."

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?
