Everton have agreed a fee of around £24million with Manchester City for Joleon Lescott, with a switch expected to be completed on Monday.

Cash-rich side City have already seen two offers for the England international rejected by their Premier League rivals.

Toffees boss David Moyes appeared defiant that Lescott would remain at Goodison Park, despite the defender recently handing in a written transfer request.

However, Lescott was not included in Everton's squad for their previous two matches, increasing speculation that a move could be in the offing.

A statement on City's official website said: "Manchester City can confirm that agreement has been reached with Everton for the transfer of Joleon Lescott.

Wouldn't say he's a £20m+ defender, guess that's what happens when everyone knows your minted.
