Everton manager David Moyes has firmly stated that Manchester City target Joleon Lescott is not for sale.
City have been chasing England international Lescott for quite some time and speculation that he would be leaving Goodison Park as part of the Jo deal have now been quashed.
Moyes spoke earlier to Everton shareholders at a fans’ forum, insisting that none of his players are up for sale.
‘I have already said there will be no players sold at Everton and I do not feel I need to say any more.’
‘The board have never sold a player from me, it will only be at my discretion.
‘I said it at the end of the season and I do not need to say any more.’
Bill Kenwright, chairman of Everton, reiterated Moyes’ comments stating:’David Moyes, and only David Moyes I promise you, will make the decisions on the playing staff at this football club.
‘He said, and he means it, nobody is for sale.’
