The England centre-half has been sidelined at City in recent weeks by the emergence of Serbia youngster Matija Nastasic.

And despite the acrimonious nature of his move from Goodison Park to the Etihad Stadium three years ago, Lescott would be welcomed back by his former manager.

Moyes said: "If Joleon wanted to come back - if I thought we needed him - I'd be delighted to have him back.

"If he was available he'd be someone I'd maybe show an interest in."

The Scot was angered by Lescott's attitude while his £22million transfer was going through, but he said: "I can understand why the player wanted to go.

"When Joleon left, Everton were in a different place to where we are now. Everton look more likely now to be at the top end than they do now."

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
