Lescott Not For Sale! *VIDEO*

Lescott Not For Sale! *VIDEO*



Everton manager David Moyes has firmly stated that Manchester City target Joleon Lescott is not for sale.

City have been chasing England international Lescott for quite some time and speculation that he would be leaving Goodison Park as part of the Jo deal have now been quashed.



Moyes spoke earlier to Everton shareholders at a fans' forum, insisting that none of his players are up for sale.

'I have already said there will be no players sold at Everton and I do not feel I need to say any more.'

'The board have never sold a player from me, it will only be at my discretion.

'I said it at the end of the season and I do not need to say any more.'

Bill Kenwright, chairman of Everton, reiterated Moyes' comments stating:'David Moyes, and only David Moyes I promise you, will make the decisions on the playing staff at this football club.

'He said, and he means it, nobody is for sale.'

The way he seems to link their efforts to sign Kyle Naughton with our offers for Lescott leads me to believe that if they can sign the Blade then they could cut Lescott loose...

Kyle Naughton is a right back, Everton are bringing him in to replace the spectacularly rubbish Tony Hibbert, not Lescott i'm afraid.

If we throw enough money at Everton they may just accept the deal.

this guy is in the bag for city he will throw a transfer request in early next week, its all very well not wanting to sell a player and i understand moyes saying hes not for sale but once lescott asks for a transfer then he will be ours within 3 days, if he doesnt throw in a request then everton wont sell for anything less than a megabid of around 25m which if we dont get terry we might just stretch to 25m, but we really should of charged them 2-3m for the loan of jo for the season aswell

You're all failing to hear David Moyes, no players will be sold this summer... is it so difficult to understand that? Yes, & that counts even if Lescott handed in a transfer request. Deal with it City fans.

I think you are right Foreverton, He would be great for City but Everton cannot afford losing Lescott and potentially their chance of Europe and the money a top 7 position. I would rather we looked at some other targets if this deal is dead. (im still going to wait until Lescott says no though ;) )

I beg to differ Foreverton. If a player hands in a transfer request then that means he wants to leave the club. It would be counter productive to keep someone at a club against his wishes. It would lead to disharmony with the player which could spread through the rest of the team. You might as well make the best of the situation as you will be making a tidy profit on the player if you sold him for around 20 mill and bring in a few quality players to strengthen the team. I admire Moyes for trying to make a stand here but in the end other factors which are out of his hands will determine what happens with Lescott.

It is really hypophetical or have we made a bid for Lescott?
