Jagielka admits he feels at home playing alongside Lescott after their spells in the same England youth sides and at Goodison Park.
The former Sheffield United player said: "Myself and Jols met playing football, England Under-19s, Under-20s. Obviously Joleon also had a similar path to me, playing for Wolves in the Championship.
"We made the first team at similar times, often played against each other, there's only a day between our birthdays, so we are pretty much the same age.
"We eventually got to play centre-half together at Everton and it just works, the communication, the way we play. Obviously left-foot, right-foot also helps as well. It just seems to work."
