Joleon Lescott is ready to leave Manchester City.

The Daily Mail says Lescott's exclusion from the latest England squad has hardened his desire to leave Manchester City this summer.

Lescott was left out by Roy Hodgson for the World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Montenegro next week after a season of relative inactivity with the Barclays Premier League champions.

City are likely to ask for a fee in the region of £4million for the 30-year-old - a fraction of the £24m they paid Everton to secure his services in 2010. The Goodison Park outfit and Aston Villa are expected to be interested.
