Everton defender Lescott moving to Man City for £25M

Manchester City should rubberstamp the signing of Everton defender Joleon Lescott in the next 24 hours.

The Sunday Times says the only comment from Everton manager David Moyes yesterday was: "Something might happen very shortly. You might get some news soon, possibly today."

Everton had rejected offers of £15m and £18m but a deal worth about £25m, including add-ons, is understood to have been finalised yesterday, although City are unlikely to have heard the end of the matter.

Over at Eastlands, before City's 1-0 win over Wolves, City boss Hughes said: "The clubs are speaking, which I'd suggest is a positive sign. Whether or not anything is concluded in the next day or so only time will tell."

Asked if Lescott would be City's last defensive recruit, Hughes said: "Not necessarily."
