Manchester United are weighing up a shock move for Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott.

The Daily Star Sunday says United boss David Moyes will decide at the end of the season whether to add Lescott to his list of defensive targets.

Former England defender Lescott, sold by Moyes for £24million when he was manager of Everton, is leaving Man City on a free.

But a move across Manchester would be as a squad player and Lescott wants regular first-team action.
