Everton FC made an official announcement earlier today and in layman’s terms snubbed Manchester City’s £18m offer for defender Joleon Lescott.

The Club statement read…

‘Everton Football Club can confirm it has received an offer of £18m for Joleon Lescott from Manchester City and that offer has been rejected outright.’

Earlier in the summer Toffees boss David Moyes turned down £15m for his star defender, and now it appears the Scotsman is digging his heels in.

Third bid?

Will/should Manchester City make a third bid for the 26-year-old and if so, at what price?
