Off contract Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott is being offered a lucrative move to MLS.

The Express & Star says Portland Timbers are set to offer Lescott a bumper contract in a bid to deter interest from Premier League clubs.

Aston Villa have been rumoured to be interested in the defender as his Man City contract expires this summer.
