Everton boss Moyes rejects Lescott transfer request

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

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.
