West Ham boss Allardyce targets Man City defender Lescott

West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce is eyeing Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott.

The Mirror says City will not offer Lescott a new deal and the defender has made up his mind to go on a Bosman because he is not a first choice under boss Manuel Pellegrini.

Lescott, 31, is prepared to accept less than his current £90,000-a-week salary when he quits City, which would make him affordable for West Ham as a free transfer.

Besiktas also remain keen on the former England international after targeting him in January and are prepared to offer him over £100,000 to come to Turkey.
