Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott has stated that he is not interested in a move away from the Etihad Stadium in the January Transfer Window.

The out of favour centre half has been majorly linked with a possible loan move to a number of Premier League clubs in the current transfer window but that clearly isn’t on his agenda.

Former club Everton were the favourites to snap up the England central defender but boyhood club Aston Villa and Harry Redknapp at Queens Park Rangers were also interested.

Such was the intense interest in his future the 30-year-old decided to release a statement via his spokesman.

“Joleon Lescott has ruled out the possibility of any loan move during the January transfer window,” said the statement according to Sky Sports.

“Despite speculation linking him with several Premier League clubs, Joleon has no desire to leave Manchester City. ”

Lescott has fallen out of favour under Roberto Mancini despite being a key player in their title winning season last time out.

Despite playing the full 90 minutes in the FA Cup yesterday, Lescott still has Vincent Kompany, Matija Nastasic and Kolo Toure ahead of him in the pecking order.
