Joleon Lescott is happy he chose to stay with Manchester City last month.

The defender, off contract in June, could've left City during the January transfer window.

"Playing against Barcelona is one of the benefits of staying. So too is the chance to win more medals," explained Lescott.

"It's a good reason to stay, to be part of this squad."
