Man City boss Hughes won't pay silly money for Everton's Lescott

Manchester City boss Mark Hughes won't pay silly money for Everton defender Joleon Lescott.

The Daily Star says Hughes is facing a battle to prise him away from Goodison Park where they value Lescott at around £20m - £5m more than City are prepared to offer for the 26-year-old.

Lescott joined Everton from Wolves for £5m three years ago and has blossomed into one of the best central defenders around.

The possibility of a double-your-wages offer from City is certain to interest him.

But Sparky will not become involved in an auction for a player who recently starred for England in their World Cup qualifier against Andorra. A £15m price tag will be their limit.
