Everton reject City's bid for Lescott

Everton have rejected an official bid from Manchester City for England defender Joleon Lescott. The Citizens are believed to have made an official offer of £15m for the 26-year-old to Toffees owner Bill Kenwright.

Lescott has been regularly linked with a move to City since the end of last season, but that interest has now been backed up by a concrete bid which will test the resolve of Everton manager David Moyes.

City have already spent more than £50m on new players this summer with Carlos Tevez, Roque Santa Cruz and Gareth moving to Eastlands but are still hoping to pair Lescott with Chelsea captain John Terry at the heart of their defence.
