Joleon Lescott has revealed that the chance to help Manchester City in their hunt for the quadruple was enough to convince him to stay.

The England international was linked with a move away from the Etihad Stadium for much of January, but a rumoured switch to West Ham failed to materialise.

The Hammers were understood to have been desperate to land the Premier League-winning centre-back, yet their efforts were unsuccessful – despite claims of a possible swap with Ravel Morrison.

Although Lescott has played a bit-part role at the club over the course of the last season-and-a-half he is believed to be settled in Manchester.

With the next six months left to run on his contract and City firmly in the race to win a possible four trophies this term, the 31-year-old confirmed on his Twitter account that he made the choice to stay and fight for silverware:

“A loan move was never on the cards for me it had nothing to do with wages just simply a chance to win 4 trophy’s with City this season.”

City’s failure to land Eliaquim Mangala from Porto may have also contributed to his stay.
