Lescott is expected to leave the Blues this summer.
Out-of-favour Manchester City centre-back Joleon Lescott has taken a swipe at Everton’s fans as the England international prepares to leave Eastlands this summer, according to reports in the Guardian.
Lescott’s current deal in the north west runs out at the end of June, meaning that Lescott will be available to pick up on a free transfer unless he is offered a new contract by the north-west outfit between now and then.
However, either way the player says that his happy with his trophy-laden five-year spell at City, especially after the 31-year-old had been accused by Toffess supporters of only leaving Goodison Park to increase his bank balance when Lescott controversially left the Merseyside giants in 2009.
“Two titles, FA Cup, League Cup, Community Shield, not too bad – not bad for a money-grabber, eh? Not a bad decision in the end,” said Lescott.
“It is the end. I know I’m going to be leaving. We’ve had a good relationship; this club has been a big part of me. As far as I’m concerned it’s the end. If something changed then great but if not there are no hard feelings between me and the club. I’ve had a great relationship with them. I know the business side of it. We’ve been successful and I hold no grudges.
“Everyone talks about how you look back when your career has finished on what you’ve won – and I can look back and say I’ve won some amazing things.
“I’m going to see what’s best for me and my family and then make a decision. I’ve spoken to a number of clubs in different countries. There’s been no decision made but I want to get it sorted soon. I don’t want to leave it till after the World Cup but at the same time I won’t rush.”
