Lescott denies exit talk

Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott has rubbished speculations linking him with a January exit from the club.

The England international is now behind Vincent Kompany, Matija Nastasic and Kolo Toure in the pecking order, which sparked rumours that he could quit Etihad this January.

However, Lescott is adamant he is happy to stay and fight for his place in the side.

“I came to the club to win trophies. I have done that and I feel there is a chance to win more this season.” Lescott said to Daily Telegraph.

“So I am more than happy to stay and fight for a place in the team. I went to see the manager about my situation and what we said will stay between us, but we both came out of the conversation happy and content with what we spoke about.”

Lescott, 30, joined Manchester City in a €27.5 million deal from Everton and immediately established himself as a first team regular at Eastlands.

The experienced defender lost his place in the side with the arrival of Matija Nastasic from Fiorentina and subsequently fell behind Kolo Toure in the pecking order.

In total, Lescott has made 13 Premier League appearances this season, starting 8 of those, and has scored one goal in the process.

With Kolo Toure currently away on Africa Cup of Nations, he is likely to be used during the busy schedule that awaits City in the next few weeks.
