Everton boss Moyes rejects Lescott transfer request

Everton boss David Moyes has rejected Joleon Lescott's transfer demand.

The Guardian says Lescott's hope of securing a lucrative move to Manchester City has receded after Moyes rejected a verbal transfer request from the England international.

The defender told Moyes in a meeting at the club's Finch Farm training base yesterday morning that he wants to leave Goodison Park for Eastlands, where he would double his £40,000-a-week salary. Moyes responded by informing the 26-year-old he would not be sold regardless of City's offer or Lescott's desire to quit the club he joined for £5m from Wolverhampton Wanderers in 2006.
