Everton boss Moyes expects more from Lescott

Boss David Moyes hailed the progress of Everton's dual player of the year, then tipped him to get better again next season.

Joleon Lescott has appeared in all of Everton's 96 competitive matches since his £4m move from Wolves in the summer of 2006 and hardly put a foot wrong in that period.

Not surprisingly, Moyes has been delighted with the 25-year-old's progress yet he is confident that there is still further development in Lescott's game.

"He did really well for us and deserved all his awards," Moyes told the Liverpool Echo.

"He played ever so well as a central defender and equally as well as a left-back. It’s great to have that versatility.

"You have to be very gifted to be able to do that. We always knew that Joleon had talent. We just gave him the opportunity.

"He has stepped up to the mark but what he has done is work terrifically hard.

"He trains every day, misses very few games and has become a really important figure but he can get better."
