Loyalty replaced by the need to make yourself look like a tosser!

Joleon Lescott is set to join Kolo Toure at Manchester City as Mark Hughes’s spending spree continues.
Toure is expected to complete a £14million switch from Arsenal in the next 24 hours, with Everton’s Lescott poised to join him.
Hughes has tabled a £15m bid for Lescott, but with Everton sticking to their £20m valuation, the defender is prepared to make the next move to break the impasse.

After apparently demanding that Everton allow him to talk to Man City Joleon Lescott is set to be the subject of an increased bid and the signs seem to point towards the defender getting the huge paycheck he clearly believes he is worthy of.
The way players are falling over themselves to get a slice of the obscene money pie is frankly as predictable as it is shameful. Joleon is the latest to let his greed trump any sense of loyalty he has for the club that put him on the footballing map and I have every sympathy for David Moyes on the situation.
The Scot tried to scare off Mark Hughes by asking for a very large sum of money for Lescott thinking that would have the required effect. Clearly large sums of money are fairly common place at Eastlands so now it would seem its very likely the England international is set to make the move.
Many will be hoping that the cash rich club falls on its arse after the way it appears to be attempting to buy itself into the top four monopoly and there will be a fair few players in newly kitted out Man City jerseys who will be getting a fair bit of stick from their former clubs and Joleon will find himself a member of that elite club next term.
