Man City chiefs convinced of deal for Everton's Lescott

Manchester City chiefs are convinced they have found a breakthrough in the stand-off for Everton defender Joleon Lescott.

The Sun says the England defender could even be unveiled to fans at City's Eastlands open day this afternoon.

Mark Hughes has trailed Lescott, 26, since January with Goodison chief David Moyes insisting the player was not for sale.

But Everton have reluctantly accepted City's bid of around £22million with add-ons taking the final fee even higher.

Lescott, who cost £5m from Wolves in 2006, will double his wages to £90,000 a week when he signs a five-year deal.
