Former Manchester City and Everton defender Joleon Lescott is training with Sunderland as David Moyes considers adding him to his squad, according to The Sun.
Lescott may well be past his best years at 34, but what he lacks in the physical attributes that made him one of the league’s best defenders during his younger years, he more than makes up for in top-level experience.
Across spells for Man City, Everton, West Brom and Aston Villa, Lescott made 286 Premier League appearances. He also picked up two winners medals during his time at the Etihad.
However, the past 18 months have not gone to plan for the former England international. After being relegated with Villa and released by AEK Athens, Lescott now finds himself without a club – but a man he worked with a long time ago could be set to rescue him from his misery.
As per The Sun, Lescott has joined up with relegation-battling Sunderland, with Moyes considering signing the 34-year-old to further his options across his back-line.
