Manchester City are putting Joleon Lescott up for sale at £8 million.

The Sun says the England star, who cost City £24million in 2010, is available at the cut-price figure to push through a quick deal.

Former club Everton are keen to take him back to Goodison Park, but his £90,000-a-week wages are a big problem.

That could open the door for QPR boss Harry Redknapp, who wants a quality centre-back to improve his under-performing Loftus Road squad.

Turkish side Galatasaray are also keen.
