Everton boss David Moyes has declared his desire to bring former Toffee Joleon Lescott back to Goodison Park in January.

Lescott is currently a permanent substitute at Manchester City and despite winning the Premier League last season; he can’t seem to get back in the City side.

“If Joleon wanted to come back – if I thought we needed him – I’d be delighted to have him back,” Moyes told Sky Sports.

“If he was available he’d be someone I’d maybe show an interest in.

“When Joleon left, Everton were in a different place to where we are now. Everton look more likely now to be at the top end than they do now.”
