Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini insists he doesn't want to lose Everton target Joleon Lescott.

Mancini claims he is happy with Lescott's attitude and says he must keep working hard to win back his place.

"Joleon is a serious man, he always works hard," said Mancini.

"He played the last 15 minutes against Newcastle, he played against Dortmund. It's important for him to continue playing and working like he is."
