Lescott: Pressure Upon Everton Intensifies

Lescott: Pressure Upon Everton Intensifies



Mark Hughes' patient wait for something to give following City's two rejected bids for The Toffees Joleon Lescott has realised a written transfer request from the England international...

...and Everton have rejected it.

Everton's gaffer David Moyes stated on the club's official website:

'I have always said that we are not selling any players and that hasn't changed.'

The big question now is following those two knocked back bids of £15 and £18 million, will it be confirmed that City have gone back a third time with an offer the Everton board would find hard to refuse regardless of their manager's stance?

Should City bag Lescott, then Sparky and his backroom staff can certainly point to a more than successful summer of squad strengthening.

More as soon as we get it...

If we sold him now we would have 1 CB for both legs of our European tie, since it's now too late to register new players. There's no way Moyes will sell now, particularily because of Hughes not contacting him directly about the player at any stage.

If Everton won't sell him, City can't buy him, simples -- City must move on and bid for other defenders.

I agree with Everton Mike, I would hope we would do the same if we were in the same postion. The Everton Board stand more to lose than Lescott if they agree to the sale. It has to be with Moyes' consent and It would appear that he can't get ina replacement. We have to look elsewhere, but it seems that we have been blinkered in our search.

Ain't everton after that Arsenal centre back? How about money and Richard Dunne in exchange for Lescott!

See EvertonMike's post... I presume Lescott has already been registered to play in the Europa League qualifier next week so any signings made won't be able to take his place, and we currently only have one other central defender fit in Joseph Yobo. You've gone about this in the worst possible way and hopefully it will end sooner rather than later.

Everton have opened negotiations with arsenal for over a week regarding senderos. If everton are interested in senderos - then they would have jag, yobo, rodwell, lescott. Doesnt seem like moyes is having that many problems finding players. City have acted correctly, went through the right channels and the fact that hughes hasnt contacted moyes personally is neither here or there. Both men dont have a personal relationship - so why would hughes call him for anything?!?! Chairman to chairman communications are used worldwide to seal transfer deals. Lescot doesnt want to play for everton. Thats the bottom line
