Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott has revealed that he is keen to stay at the Etihad Stadium.
The England international’s future has been the subject of much doubt this summer, with the Sky Blues often fielding Matija Nastasic and Vincent Kompany as their centre-back pairing last season.
With his contract set to expire at the end of the current campaign, Lescott has been linked with a move away from the club in recent months.
However, a series of injuries have thrust him into new boss Manuel Pellegrini’s plans, and the 30-year-old says that he is keen to stay and fight for regular first-team football:
“I have expressed a number of times that nothing more would please me than to sign an extension.” He is quoted by The Express.
“If that negotiating ever happens I will be there with my pen ready to sign.”
Lescott was a key part of City’s Premier League winning side of 2011/12, forming a formidable partnership with Kompany.
But, Nastasic’s arrival saw has cast aside under former coach Roberto Mancini.
A move back to Everton has been mooted, while some rumours have suggested that Liverpool were also interested.
