Everton agree Lescott fee with City

LIVERPOOL, August 23 – Everton on Sunday confirmed they have agreed a fee with English Premier League rivals Manchester City for the sale of defender Joleon Lescott, bringing to an end a bitter, summer-long saga.JOLEON_LESCOTT_The England international is expected to undergo a medical on Monday after City finally matched the Merseysiders’ valuation of 24 million pounds.

Earlier, Everton manager David Moyes took a final swipe at City over the affair.

Asked after his side’s 1-0 defeat at Burnley on Sunday if the Lescott deal was well advanced Moyes said: "If they (City) say they are quite far on I’m sure they are.

"But we shouldn’t have been asked to wait this length of time for an amount of cash we think was the correct value for the player.

"Real Madrid came in with the money to buy Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United the week after the end of the season.

"If the money had been offered in June it would have been a lot easier for us. The time is against us (to find a replacement)."
